The startup culture is strong across America. Living in Austin, Tx also helps me experience the influence a startup infused economy has on a city. We have twice a year startup-crawls, where half a dozen startups invite whomever in the startup world to come by, have free drinks and mingle with the employees.
These types of events are becoming more prevalent especially with the tech crowd. There are plenty of meetup groups that will focus on data analysis, growth hacking, augmented reality and more. These events help the startup community grow and spread ideas leading to even more startups.
As the USA becomes an even larger hub for creative thinkers and technological powerhouse, its only a matter of time until the majority of millennials are working for that corporation who used to be that tiny startup down the street.
