Just last week, there was an event here in Boulder put on by the MIT Club of Colorado.

I thought this segment was particularly interesting. We’ve heard so often lately that you have to be in Silicon Valley to be successful with a software startup. While it’s clear to those of us that know or have built or invested in great companies here in Colorado that this is a load of crap, many people seem to buy into that idea.

The reality is that you could build a great tech startup in any market that has a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem. Here are some of the Colorado VCs (two of which recently relocated from Silicon Valley) talking about this very issue.

You can see the entire event over on ColoradoStartups.com. if you’d like to.
