What Midsize Cities Must Do to Boost Entrepreneurship

Chattanooga, Tenn. was historically known as "River City" for its prime waterfront location along the Tennessee River. A few years ago, when it installed a city-owned fiber-optic network, it became known as "Gig City." Local leaders -- especially Mayor Andy Berke -- now tout Chattanooga for having the fastest and one of the least expensive high-speed Internet services in the U.S.

But Mayor Berke realized it takes more to jumpstart the tech economy in the midsize, southern city. In this interview, he discusses the do's and don'ts of government promoting local startup activity. From reverse pitch nights, to pushing for an Open Data Policy, he shares a new approach toward building Chattanooga's own startup ecosystem.
