Happy Monday to you wherever you are out there!
Speaking of wherever you are … that's an exciting place to be. A place where amazing new businesses are born.
What I mean is, it's not about Silicon Valley anymore. Or Boston. Or NYC. It's not even about Austin, Boulder, or Seattle.
Nothing against those places, of course. It's just that exciting businesses are being born everywhere. It's happening due to the increasing connectivity entrepreneurs have with one another, and with their prospects, customers, and clients … even while safely at home during a pandemic.
Truth is, there are vibrant startup communities all over the place. Not to mention the increasing numbers of seven figure small businesses that operate outside of the venture capital circus all together.
Matt Hunckler joins us this week to discuss his mission of making the case that middle America amounts to an undervalued asset, rich in markets, new business ideas, and budding entrepreneurs. His company Powderkeg brings entrepreneurs between the coasts together to find the resources they need to grow and thrive.
We also talk about how the pandemic is accelerating the idea of “everywhere is a startup hub,” and how Powderkeg quickly pivoted from live events to virtual value for its members out of obvious necessity.
