At this year’s 2018 Summit we welcomed 620 ecosystem builders from 50 states, Puerto Rico, Washington D.C. and 10 countries – including 121 U.S. Mayors. Half of the delegation identified as women and one-third as individuals of color.
Attendees helped catalogue 633 ecosystem building tools and resources and dreamed up a wish list of 412 tools they’d like to see created in the future. The Summit featured 74 presenters and 1 updated draft version of the Kauffman ecosystem building playbook (now online).
Together, attendees workshopped the 7 (Draft) ESHIP Goals (suggesting 76 edits). Summit attendees dreamed up 94 initiatives that this community could undertake to help us attain the ESHIP Goals, collectively making 501 goal commitments, including 155 people who raised their hands to lead.
