The startup community in San Diego is hard. I don’t mean this as a woeful cry, but as an admission of an uphill battle.
San Diego is no Philadelphia, Boston, Boulder, or San Francisco. It almost seems like the people in San Diego made their fortune, and now they’re out surfing. Don’t get me wrong: I think enjoying life is fantastic, and I intend to do the same. But at some point, the entrepreneurs in other startup cultures came back and started reinvesting in the local community in time and money.
Having a great idea is cool; but any idea needs nurturing: a culture of feedback and commonality of purpose. Here’s to working in San Diego, you entrepreneurs. Here’s to you. Let’s make San Diego a better place!
