Long considered the ideal environment for tech startup companies, Silicon Valley has recently become a victim of its own success, an expensive, crowded, hypercompetitive place that no longer works for all entrepreneurs.
In Screw the Valley, author Tim Sprinkle takes readers on a cross-country road trip, hitting many of the new tech hotspots: Austin, Texas; the Raleigh-Durham area in North Carolina; Las Vegas, Nevada; New York City, New York; Detroit, Michigan; Boulder, Colorado; and Kansas City, Missouri.
In a tour of these seven new technology cities, Sprinkle encourages entrepreneurs to think outside the Silicon Valley box and explore the modern startup culture that’s springing up all over the country. With an up-close look at the major players in each city, how the local culture is conducive to the burgeoning tech industry, and what each city is bringing to the table in new innovations and inventions.
