Description


The most exciting high-tech startups are escaping the expensive and inbred environment of Silicon Valley. Welcome to the future.

Entrepreneurs know they must embrace innovation to excel--starting with where they locate their new venture. Fortunately, budding companies seeking fertile ground have more options today than ever before. Screw the Valley calls on today's entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners to forget California and explore other options across the country--cities that offer more room to breathe, easier access to funding and talented workers, fewer heads to butt, and less money down the drain.

Timothy Sprinkle visits seven areas that offer a superior landscape for tech startups:

Detroit
New York City
Las Vegas
Austin
Kansas City
Raleigh-Durham
Boulder

Sprinkle gives readers a window into the startup potential in each city, detailing which industries are thriving where, and highlighting the unique appeal and character of each location.

Bright ideas are not geographically limited, and innovation is happening every day in cities all over the country. It's time to think outside the box when it comes to startup location. It's time to say Screw the Valley.
