Paul Silva started as an entrepreneur with a crazy idea: "What if we could create video games for blind people?" As you can imagine, getting the attention of investors wasn't easy, but despite a limited market and an admittedly off-the-wall concept, Paul made it work, and swiftly got involved in the limited (but earnest) startup scene of Western Massachusetts. He now runs a maker space (ClickSpace), manages a mentorship group for new startups and startup investors (Valley Venture Mentors), and continues to keep the plates spinning to get all aspects of his area's startup ecosystem flourishing.

In this interview, Paul shares some insights on what startup founders and startup teams can do to get access to capitol and expertise within their ecosystem, as well as the lesser-known ways of tapping into the expertise already around them.
