Entrepreneur Ecosystems for the Common Good

Building the people skills and agency capacity to spur entrepreneurs for the common good.

Challenges we face...

  • Not enough resources to support emerging entrepreneurs and small businesses
  • Missing building blocks among entrepreneur ecosystem stakeholders
  • Entrepreneurs are not sure how to package a plan and raise capital 
  • Barriers and lack of access to 21st century resources.

But we have hope and believe that...

This requires investing in the skills of emerging entrepreneurs, local TA practitioners and using best practices for business development support, technical assistance and training.

  1. 1
    People can be innovative to solve these challenges when they support a culture of entrepreneurship (and for the common good) 
  2. 2
    When given options and opportunity, community stakeholders will work together and build upon the wealth of knowledge and assets that are within the community
  3. 3
    We can help communities attract more investment when they have training, plans and demonstration of pilot projects with promise to scale.
