There are so many reasons why someone starts his own business.
Freedom of decision, economic rewards, being independent.
All these are the benefits for smooth sailing.
But what about the rest of the time, when things with your business are not going so well, or you need help?
This is when, where the power of startup ecosystem appears.
The feeling of belonging somewhere.
When your problems, become problems of others as well, either because they are interested and they choose to support you, or because they have been in the same position in the past.
“You won’t understand the unabashed power of a community until you’ re a part of one.”
And they are absolutely right – the Startup Ecosystem, is not something that can be described.
It’s a combination of things you can count, from the pro-bono services provided, to the rest that cannot be seen. Like the after work drinks at the end of the day in a co-working space. It’s that smile when you meet each other during conferences and events, or competitions that you are both participating in.
A startup success is something amazing.
But because it needs a lot of time and effort until you reach that point, it’s always better to have people that are in the same position, sharing the same feelings and challenges as you do.
