"As Feld recently told Richard Florida: “Central, top down, planning — like the economic strategy of communist Russia, doesn’t work. Hierarchical planning, whether driven by government, university, or other hierarchical organizations doesn’t work. There is no president of a startup community. There is no vice president of membership, or vice president of education. Startup communities are networks — glorious in all their messiness and chaos. However, they aren’t simply organic phenomena. You have to have leaders who are entrepreneurs. They have to have a long-term view. They have to be inclusive of anyone who wants to engage. And they have to create, and have, activities and events occurring on a continuous basis”."
