Hey all. After reading everyone's inspiring observations, your comment Ciara led me to think: what is the start-up priority list regarding their location? Considering well known cases such as Silicon Valley's, one would think that networking and co-locating VC's and entrepreneurs is a relevant aspect. At the same time, this may be relevant for some kind of start-ups, service and technology based ones for example. It's possible that others may be prioritizing space for their ventures. If so, does Sarah's concept predispose a certain type of start-up to locate in the city? What other things may these particular start-ups be looking for beside cheap real estate that should be provided to encourage them to locate here? IT infrastructure maybe? Transportation connectivity? Proximity with universities?
I don't have much experience in entrepreneurship, so it would be great if someone could provide some insights on what start-ups are looking for!
