  • These are Nerds.Does anyone recognize this photo?This is a photo of the founding team of Microsoft, taken in 1978.That’s Bill Gates on the lower left.Would any of you have funded this team?
  • One of the best known examples of this is the so-called ‘PayPal Mafia’ from Silicon Valley.The top two rows and the gentleman on the right represent the founders and senior leadership at PayPal. The bottom three were employees: 2 engineers and 1 designer – Steve, Chad, and Jawed.They went on to start YouTube, with funding from the former CFO of their former company.Jeremy Stoppelman, VP of Technology at PayPal went on to start Yelp, an online guide to shops & services based on user-reviews.He received funding from two of PayPal’s co-founders.Reid Hoffman – Executive VP of PayPal – went on to start LinkedIn, a career-oriented social networking site, which I’m sure most of you are members of.He got started with LinkedIn with seed money from PayPal co-founder & CEO, Peter Thiel.As you can see, successful entrepreneurs started new companies, became angel investors who shared their networks and attracted more people into this space…

    24. INTERNAL USE ONLYLessons for building a high-impact entrepreneurial ecosystem: Entrepreneur-led ecosystem development works best. Governments, accelerators, investment firms, service providers and multinational firms play important support roles, but ecosystem development must follow the lead of established entrepreneurs. It takes more than just start-ups. Successful high-impact entrepreneurs, who “pay-it-forward” by supporting and inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs, are required. A small number of high-impact entrepreneurs turn out to be especially critical. Entrepreneurs at the top three most influential companies touched 60%+ of the other companies in the sector. Entrepreneurs who have successful exits should be encouraged to become active angel investors and/or VCs. Local entrepreneurs who’ve “been there before” can offer the smartest capital to high-potential and attract high-quality partners from outside the region.
