The 2015 Mayors Conference in 13 Tweets

This week, the Kauffman Foundation hosted the 2015 Mayors Conference on Entrepreneurship: Recipes for Growth in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Nearly 40 cities from around the country were represented by mayors, city council members, and high-ranking municipal staff. 

They were joined by a host of experts who shared best practices about promoting startup activity and discussed ways to encourage higher levels of entrepreneurship in cities. Below are a sample of tweets that highlight the conversations and activities that took place.

A major theme during the Mayors Conference, as highlighted by the above tweets, was the importance of guided experimentation. Mayors and local policymakers should think strategically about their city: its strengths, challenges, and opportunities. They should embrace experimentation, while having it guided by research and approaches that make sense within their local context.
