Expanding the reach of broadband

by Peter Fleck


Two critical pieces of the startup puzzle are healthcare and internet data connection/broadband. For the most part, both issues are currently in the hands of our government (and quasi private industry). I won’t talk healthcare except to say that no matter how entrepreneurial one is (or aspires to be) and no matter how creative one’s ideas, the necessity to provide adequate (family) healthcare coverage can easily keep even the most promising entrepreneur chained to the 9-5 “corporate” environment – thus stifling the ability to venture out, assume risk and ultimately innovate.
