Chapter 4: What do entrepreneurs do in the City of Fountains? A case study of Kansas City
This chapter examines entrepreneurship activities through a large-scale survey of high-tech firms and focus groups of entrepreneurs attending at 1 Million Cups, a grassroots-based networking activities started in 2012. The survey demonstrates that the companies in the high-tech sectors valued informal local access to innovative people or ideas, but, at the same time, the research-related factors came at the bottom of their list. The focus groups uncover that entrepreneurs value the peer-based learning from presenting their business ideas and receiving feedback.
