ESHIP Summit 2019

May 21, 2019May 23, 2019

What Happens at the ESHIP Summit?

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.

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.

  • We’re expecting up to 50 national resource organizations to join us to share ecosystem building tools, programs and practices that you can learn from and take back to your community.
  • We’ll spend a lot of time working in small groups to activate more teams building new ecosystem building tools –  where solutions don’t yet exist.
  • We’ll also collaborate on refining and building further consensus around the mission, values and vision of our emerging field.
  • All the while, we’ll be connecting attendees to a growing national network of peers and resource providers who can help you move your work forward.
  • We’ll make lots of new friends supporting and learning about each other’s work.
  • We’ll eat good food while exploring the sights and sounds of Kansas City.

And, of course, we’ll have a few fun surprise guests and activities that have become the hallmark of the ESHIP Summit.

We hope you will join us.
