Bootstrapping a Startup Ecosystem

In a little over 7 years we've built a thriving community of technologists and entrepreneurs in a community not known for technology. This was done without any outside funding, no venture capitalists to be seen, and little to no government support. Our goal is to share the lessons we've learned along the way and help others build their own startup communities in places that would otherwise be ignored by the startup ecosystem.
