These elements will strengthen our professional field and support more people working to remove barriers for entrepreneurs everywhere.


The ESHIP Goals are a proposed set of collective objectives to further fortify the entrepreneurial ecosystem building field. Modeled on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, the ESHIP Goals will serve as a checklist to help us prioritize, organize, and collaborate as we work together to improve the effectiveness of our field as a whole and, as a result, the effectiveness of individual ecosystem builders everywhere. Achieving these goals will strengthen our profession and accelerate its adoption in more communities—removing more barriers for more entrepreneurs throughout the world.
