Leaders vs Feeders

November 12, 2013      

Tonight is the first meeting of the Birmingham Tech startup Ecosystem Leaders (temporary name) up to now the eco-system has had no leadership and as a result is being left behind by other UK and European cities.

Sure we have had plenty of feeders trying to act as leaders but as Brad Feld says in his book “Startup Communities” “THE MOST CRITICAL PRINCIPLE OF A STARTUP COMMUNITY IS THAT ENTREPRENEURS MUST LEAD IT”. Today marks the change for Birmingham’s tech eco-system, we will be working on a plan to drive forward the community and get the feeders bought in and enabling the plan.

The presentation that was used to introduce the idea to the 25 leaders of the community can be seen here.
