Uh, this is going to rock.
Brad Feld, author, investor, entrepreneur (not necessarily in that order) is coming to meet San Diego startups. I am particularly fired up to show him the progress San Diego has made in the 2-3 years since I saw him at his Do More Faster tour.
So come out in force! Buy your tickets early -- this will SELL OUT.
Brad will talk about building Startup Communities from his fourth book, Startup Communities: Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Your City. (https://www.amazon.com/dp/1118441540/ref=as_li_tf_til?tag=marbynum-20&camp=0&creative=0&linkCode=as1&creativeASIN=1118441540&adid=02BES9B2GWBN5XY4S2FA&) If you have not read it, you should. You will recognize the issues we are all wrestling with.
He also has three (!) others coming out over the course of 2013 (Startup Life, Startup Boards, and Startup Metrics - see http://startuprev.com (https://www.amazon.com/dp/1118441540/ref=as_li_tf_til?tag=marbynum-20&camp=0&creative=0&linkCode=as1&creativeASIN=1118441540&adid=02BES9B2GWBN5XY4S2FA&).)
We'll be sure to save time for Q&A. Feel free to post questions for Brad below and I'll make sure the most popular ones are addressed.
