One of the most important things an entrepreneur can do in their journey is find a community. The high highs and low lows of being an entrepreneur are incredibly stressful. By finding a community of like-minded entrepreneurs that are eager to share ideas and the ups and downs, success is accelerated and emotions modulated.
Here are a few ideas for finding an entrepreneurial community:
- Start with the local EO chapter ($1M+ in revenue requirement) or EO Accelerator ($250k+ in revenue requirement)
- Look to local colleges and universities as they often have entrepreneurial groups or incubators
- Find a local tech entrepreneurship center like the Atlanta Tech Village
- Research the central non-profit for entrepreneurs in the region and get involved
Finding an entrepreneur community is immensely valuable and should be high on the list of things to do when building a company.
