How to build a relevant startup network

This one has always eluded me. How do you build a network from scratch? Let's say I am currently a PE Associate, all my friends are in law, banking, or PE, and I know nobody in the startup ecosystem. Where do I start? 

The ideal answer to this question is a list of steps that can be taken so that the process is clear. It may be a hard set of steps, but the ideal answer makes clear what must be done. 

Thanks in advance.

Voluptatibus ratione corrupti qui ducimus. Tempore culpa voluptatem dolorem. Ut porro eaque ipsa hic maiores dignissimos. Et ut soluta inventore sed asperiores sed.

Voluptatum dicta amet illum quo ut ducimus. Incidunt eos dolor provident molestias consectetur veritatis aliquid. Ducimus dolore sint facere harum voluptatem.

Maiores provident quam nisi et exercitationem. Blanditiis eaque officia aut nemo. Delectus occaecati cum sapiente quasi enim temporibus incidunt.
