Life Outside of Silicon Valley

Chip Griffin has an interview with Matt Rightmire of Borealis Ventures up on his blog.  Matt is ex-Yahoo and is now a partner at a VC firm in New Hampshire that’s affiliated with Village Ventures.  They had a nice exit in my backyard recently when Google acquired @Last earlier this year.  I got together with Matt for lunch when I was in Boston running the Boston Marathon and we had a fun conversation about entrepreneurship and venture capital outside of Silicon Valley.  Matt and Chip cover this topic extensively in the interview and – while it’s focused on New Hampshire – the ideas generally apply to many other geographic regions outside of Silicon Valley
