Before you launch your startup think about your location. Read Location matters for your startup by Scott Allison.

Y-Combinator partner Paul Graham recently wrote an essay, “Why startup hubs work“:

If you’re in a startup hub, unexpected good things will probably happen to you, especially if you deserve them.

And it’s not just the increased likelihood of serendipity, but to do your best work, who you hang around with matters.

Jim Rohn said:

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

One response to Location matters for your startup via Scott Allison

  1. I can, kinda, agree with article, but this looks like opportunity;  the person or persons who is able to remove this ‘constraint’ in the age of ‘location-based’ technologies will get my vote!  Location-based constraints in the age of Foursquare, Gowalla, Facebook, Loopt, etc., are oxymoronical and should not be accepted as the norm.  Where s the Steve Jobs’ of the start-up space?  These false barriers to entry have to go!
