In thinking more about the effectual thinking model of entrepreneurship, what came to mind was the podcast on "We Work," discussing the start up of Mighel McKelvey's communal workspace concept. He discussed creating the community aspect as the model for replacing typical work place environments. He started something with not a lot of capital, but with what he was passionate about and that with which he already had to work. His life environment played a part in the start up. He was raised in a commune by his mother and a group of other women, so from the start, he realized the importance of community as a support system. It also brought to mind a place here in Lenexa with whom we have done some work...Plexpod. It sounds like a similar system. Great things are done together, and creativity is certainly not fostered in isolation.
