How does a tech startup that is not located in ValleyWood succeed? What can you do to raise capital and awareness of your startup?

For the last year I’ve been running a company while building a software as a service product within the same ecosystem.

I listen to interviews on Mixergy and ThisWeekIn Startups that inspire me, educate me, and piss me off.

Why?

Because it seems that only the 1% in Silicon Valley are really going to make it big. What about the rest of us who don’t have the connections to get funded? Or live in big cities to recruit talent? Or a big exit under our belt?
