Hope and Startup Communities

Recently I saw the movie Hunger Games after it showed up as a recommended item on Netflix.

After an insufficient answer is given, the leader responds: hope. People need hope otherwise they won’t care and won’t be as involved and committed.

Startup communities need hope as well. The Atlanta startup community is at an all-time high due to amazing progress and hope. Here are a few examples:

Hope is an important ingredient to push things forward and do things never thought possible. Startup communities need hope just like anything else.

What else? What are your thoughts on hope and startup communities?
