Silicon Gulf offers up yet another great piece on developing an information technology business cluster. Again, their focus is the Phillippines – but the organizing ideas are universal, and communities across the globe could benefit from their work.

This time, SG refers us to the Brain Gain Network, who suggests a number of areas that a group of IT professionals agreed needed to be focussed upon to develop what they call “technopreneurism” (combining technology and entrepreneurism) in the Phillippines. You should click on the link to read the whole article, but here’s the bulleted list:

  • BUILD A COMMUNITY OF FUNDING SOURCES
  • BUILD A COMMUNITY OF MENTORS AND TUTORS
  • BUILD A KNOWLEDGE BASE ON INCUBATION; REGIONAL SHARING
  • CREATE A STEADY DEAL FLOW
  • DEVELOP A SUPPLY/SERVICES NETWORK
  • DEVELOP INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAWS
  • ESTABLISH A NETWORK OF INCUBATORS
  • ESTABLISH INCENTIVES FOR HIGH-TECH ENTREPRENEURS
  • IMPROVE S&T EDUCATION; CROSS POLLENIZATION
  • TECHNOPRENEURSHIP COURSES AT TERTIARY LEVEL

Again, there is much to learn from their example.
