The most important rule of thriving ecosystem is - If you can give, you can take. Think from that perspective, whenever you need something. First think what can I offer. Maximise that, and you’d see that people in the ecosystem will go out of their way to help you achieve your goals. More - http://uvtimes.blogspot.in/2016/08/how-to-leverage-startup-ecosystem.html
