In Chapter 2 of 20 of his 2010 Capture Your Flag interview, hyperlocal entrepreneur Dan Street details multiple macro factors driving community isolation. He notes three specific challenges: First, the existing lack of engagement within communities and the causes of this isolated lifestyle; Second, the overwhelming nature of community engagement choice, or where to start making a contribution; Third, the competitive neighbor mindset that limits collaboration and camaraderie.
Street is the founder and CEO of Austin, Texas based Loku (previously Borrowed Sugar) which develops Internet software to strengthen local communities. Previously, Street worked in private equity at Kohlberg, Kravis, and Roberts (KKR) and management consulting at Bain & Co. He earned a BA in music and business from Rice University.
