March 8, 2018View for printing

This week, I'm in Reno, Nevada for VentureBeat's Blueprint conference, where we've gathered more than 300 entrepreneurs, investors, and economic development officials to talk about the challenges and opportunities facing tech companies that have set up shop outside of Silicon Valley.

And interest in exploring lesser-known markets is only growing.
