Startup Communities: Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Your City

Wearing the hats of managing director of Foundry Group, co-founder of TechStars, world traveler, investor, voracious reader, prolific lifestyle blogger, and marathon runner weren’t enough to keep Brad Feld occupied this summer so he decided to pen four more books. As he said on his blog back in May:

I’ve currently written three books: Venture DealsDo More Faster, and Burning Entrepreneur. This summer I’m going to write four more – Startup Communities, Startup Life, Startup Boards, and Startup Accounting. They are all in process and at different stages of completion – by the end of the summer they’ll be largely done and will come out quarterly starting in Q3. My goal is to cover a broad range of Startup topics in the same format that Jason and I did with Venture Deals.

Making good on this promise, Brad holed up in Keystone, Colorado and wrote like his hair was on fire. Startup Communities is now available for pre-order on Amazon. If you care about entrepreneurial ecosystems and/or fostering any kind of community, this is your book. In the meantime, subscribe to the Startup Revolution blog, a content rich resource for all things entrepreneurial.
