What does it take to cultivate a strong entrepreneurial and startup community? No one has the exact recipe, but we know it takes passionate advocates who are willing to take bold risks, champion collaboration over a siloed spotlight, and who have a diehard spirit. Jonathan Cottrell, founder of Hopscratch and the guy behind #yesphx and PHX Startup Week, is one such person.
In this episode Jonathan shares how PHX Startup Week came to be, how he juggles a growing startup, a marriage and three kids, and rallying the community around entrepreneurship through #yesphx. If you’re in the Phoenix area, be sure to check out PHX Startup Week February 22-26, 2016. It’s free to attend!
Next week I’m in the lab with Michael Sacca, co-host of the Rocketship.fm podcast and partnership manager at Crew. We talk all things entrepreneurial. Be sure to tune! Until then, have prosperous week!
