    When drafting a submission on the Economic Development strategy, be sure to point out the incompetence of the current Economic Development Unit and Upstart at sponsoring or encouraging innovation in the city.

      Superb! So much traction about. The Dunedin shitheads don’t care, they’re paid not to care.

      In short, David Quinn says (hard/simple):

      “Let me be really clear about this. There is no such thing as “an Audacious business”. Try and stop some of these people starting up. The relationship goes more like this:

      There is a small proportion of the student population that study in Dunedin that have the need start a business. You can’t stop them, even if you try. So the game goes like this:

      ● Identify them.
      ● Get them involved with a community of like minded endeavour.
      ● Get out of the way.
      ● Help get other shit out of their way.
      ● Attract others on the fringe of this into the fold. Complementary skills.
      ● Provide the environment to make it easy for others to dive in and startup, or join up.
      ● Celebrate success.
      ● Drive this developing culture, in Dunedin, and encourage some of these wealth creators to stay.
      ● Care.
      ● Care more.”
