Diversity fuels creativity, and through creativity, innovation emerges. Ecosystem builders come from diverse fields, backgrounds, and regions but all share a common vision: democratize opportunity and create a community and culture of collaboration. Entrepreneurs, philanthropists, policymakers, researchers, economic developers, grassroots community leaders, academics, corporate leaders and media from 48 U.S. states, D.C., Puerto Rico, and 10 countries were convened at the ESHIP Summit. These ecosystem builders pioneered tools, metrics, and principles to create actionable plans for developing entrepreneurial ecosystems.
ESHIP Summit was co-created with 58 national partners. We’re grateful for their efforts to help curate attendees and refine the program. If you’re interested in becoming a partner and your organization directly supports entrepreneurial ecosystem builders, please contact us.
