The Start up annual is focused on sharing stories in the start up world so new business can learn from others. It would be released every year and you could have one for each city.

How will your concept support web entrepreneurship?

Learning from other start up's

What kinds of resources will be needed to get this concept off the ground and scale it?

This could be funded by the government to help inspire others to start a business.

How could we get started?

Speak to a publishing company to see if they would be interested in publishing a book on start ups. Speak to a few start up's to see if they would like to share their story

Would love to see a Feltron Annual Report visual data analysis mixed with stories and experiences of startups.

Great idea! It would be interesting to see who you could partner with to get the idea out whether it be media, government or VC's that might fund/sponsor the project too. Could there be a local report for every city that you provide a platform to make it really easy for each city to make their own in a common branding and analysis, a little like TEDx independently organised, this would be independently organised annual report.

Oh, Feltron-like reports are a lovely idea, James! How might we make it something people treasure and re-read, not just read and toss? TBH I think there is value in either path.... whatever gets people buzzing!

Great suggestion James
I think partnering with schools and colleges can also be a cool way to start, I say this because colleges like NYU Poly hosts incubators for many array of companies and individuals.
