westartup is a set of tools designed to supercharge local efforts for building entrepreneurial communities.

Some of my thinking on the subject can be found in an article I wrote for the Whiteboard magazine (How to build an entrepreneurial ecosystem in 4 steps http://bit.ly/XwH0bS) and another for DataNews (Entrepreneurship: we're teaching it wrong http://bit.ly/1bDhZyZ).

If you would like to discus further, contact me at leo@westartup.eu.
