Entrepreneurial culture: A tale of two cities | Startups

Entrepreneurial culture: A tale of two cities | Startups: "substitute for detailed insight and that there’s no need to build relationships with potential investors (OK, the ‘I’ll-kick-you-round-the-room-the first-time-I meet-you-to-show-how-clever-I-am-because-I’m-a-dragon’ approach may be partly to blame for that).
