It's not that we need new ideas, but we need to stop having old ideas.
We've been talking about Reno and its future a lot lately. Hack4Reno really cemented our belief that Reno has a diverse and talented community of individuals. It has taken us a while to meet everyone (and we're certain that its far from everyone) but we're excited about what is to come.
Change is a slow but inevitable process. We can see it happening all around us, the good and the bad. In Reno, downtown is changing, midtown is finally coming into its own with more restaurants, coffee shops and bars. These are the kinds of places that will help to make Reno into a startup hub. Inspiring chance encounters between individuals, sharing stories and working side by side allows for the spark of innovation to take hold.
Reno Collective is quickly approaching its 2nd anniversary. In the last two years, we've had over 50 members. Our members and our partners have seen a glimpse of what Reno can be. We love where we live and we have all come to terms with the fact that if you want something done, you sometimes have to do it yourself. To truly transform a community, you can't just talk about it. You have to do it. Our community members are starting their own businesses, working on the bleeding edge of the industries and are really good at what they do.
We are working on new things at Reno Collective that will be announced soon but in the meantime, what are some things you'd like to see happening in Reno and the region?
