In the foreward to Brad Feld's most recent book, Startup Communities, Steve Case begins:
During the past three decades, startups in the United States have created 40 million American jobs, all the net job creation in the country over that period. As we recover from a deep recession, our ability to innovate, build iconic companies, put people back to work, and inspire the world will once again be determined by whether entrepreneurs continue taking chances on a dream to start a business.
This point demonstrates the importance of Startup Communities.
