Giving Back to Move Forward
The Flywheel Effect: StartupAZ’s Operational Framework.
“It’s safe to say our flywheel is spinning and only gaining momentum – and that’s thanks, in large part, to the spirit of generosity that is very much alive in this region. There is an undeniable linkage between performance and generosity, and over the last several years, Arizona’s flywheel has been building up a tremendous amount of kinetic energy and momentum, which has been dependent on three things: its velocity, how much friction it encounters, and its mass. And though it needs a lot of force to get it started, it also needs a lot of force to make it stop –– which, as it turns out, is not unlike the growth and vitality of the Valley’s startup and innovation community.”
