The ESHIP Summit 2019


The 2019 ESHIP Summit is a convening that brings together entrepreneurial ecosystem builders – leaders connecting communities to accelerate entrepreneurship.

During this year’s Summit, we’ll build on our work at past events to continue to push our field forward towards solutions to the ESHIP Goals from last year's convening.

Along the way, we’ll explore the many existing ecosystem building tools we’ve uncovered – some showcased publicly for the first time. This will include field-tested approaches to inclusive ecosystem building, best practices for fostering collaboration across a community, measurement approaches for ecosystem metrics and more.
