Like in all ecosystems, the success of this community will have many mothers and fathers. We must work together to create change by generating and nurturing relationships that will build this movement. In that, the Kauffman Foundation is committed to hosting the ESHIP Summit in 2018 and 2019 to convene the community and further foster relationships that co-lead the movement.
We’re also committed to maintain the Playbook which provides a general framework based on years of research and experience. Our goal is to create a simple, understandable, shareable guide for those who seek to foster entrepreneurship in their communities. We invite you to connect, converse and collaborate with us on the Playbook to develop and design new knowledge, strategies and tools that will help move our entrepreneurial communities forward.
We’ll also start doing more work alongside you, directly in your communities, starting in 2018, to help fortify ecosystems.
The best way to stay engaged with us is to share more of what you’re working on through your playbook feedback and stories you share. Help us build the playbook and learn about all the good work you are doing. We want you to keep sharing with us what you’re learning, what’s working, what isn’t, what you need help with (firstname.lastname@example.org) but this is your movement, and it will only work if we create it together.
