E23: Chris Heivly – Building Startup Communities with “The Startup Whisperer”
Posted: November 17, 2017
This week we welcomed Mapquest co-founder Chris Heivly into the Podcast Milwaukee studio. Following a successful exit to AOL, Chris has dedicated almost 20 years to identifying communities to implement startup ecosystems.
He has had a variety of roles over his career, and today serves as the Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Techstars and as co-Managing Director of The Startup Factory. Chris has a clear understanding of what it takes to build a successful startup community, and sheds light on some of the key factors for markets such as our own to consider.
