I’ve gotten to know Doug Rand over the past six years. He’s engaged with and influenced my thinking on Startup Communities in important ways. We’ve also spent a lot of time around immigration, especially the Startup Visa, and patents. Of the people I’ve spent time with in Washington, DC, I put Doug at the top of the list for clear thinkers and doers.
It was fun to listen to the story on WJCT about Doug’s talk in Jacksonville, FL – his home town – in the article White House Pitches Entrepreneurial Inclusiveness In Jacksonville.
Doug – thanks for the callout to my work, Boulder, and Startup Communities.
