EshipCity: Zero Barriers Movement

When Victor Hwang, vice president of Entrepreneurship, came to the Kauffman Foundation, it became very clear to him that there was a renewal happening in the heartland.
It’s important to witness this grassroots resurgence first hand. We need to listen to the entrepreneurs who are making things happen in their communities. We want to hear their stories of how they are fighting day after day to build great businesses in the new economy and what barriers stand in their way. And we want to find out how a community can foster and support the entrepreneurial spirit.
