On a regular basis I talk to someone that wants to be an entrepreneur or wants to help entrepreneurs. I like to ask what steps they’ve taken to make that happen and there usually isn’t as much concrete progress as I would hope. My response is always the same: get involved with the startup community and begin participating. There are so many good resources, places, and programs now that it’s super easy to get involved.
Here are a few ways to get involved with the Atlanta startup community:
- Follow the Atlanta Tech Village, Hypepotamus, and ATDC on Twitter
- Subscribe to the Atlanta Tech Village, Hypepotamus, and ATDC email newsletters
- Attend the regular Atlanta Startup Village and TAG Entrepreneur events
- Grab the event calendar feed from Startup Atlanta
With so many events, it actually becomes easy to attend too many events and not make enough progress on your startup. Find the right balance with respect to getting involved but most importantly just start.
What else? What are some other ways to get involved with the Atlanta startup community?
