There was a special report recently published in the Financial Times that talked about how the Israeli startup scene is driven by returning veterans and has been for years.
Why can’t America do the same? The short answer is cost structure.
Makerspace Development has the potential change all this for returning veterans.
Major innovation hubs like New York, Paris, LA, and London are scrambling to hold on to their places in the creative class ecosystem. The reason is that they are too expensive for most creatives to live and work.
