POSTPONED – ESHIP Summit 2020
June 29, 2020—July 2, 2020
The ESHIP Summit is a convening that brings together entrepreneurial ecosystem builders — leaders connecting communities to accelerate entrepreneurship.
At the 2019 Summit we built on our work at past events to continue to push the emerging field of entrepreneurial ecosystem building forward, towards solutions to the ESHIP Goals – a set of collective objectives for the field to prioritize, organize, and collaborate, as we work together.
We explored many existing ecosystem building tools 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.
- 50+ national resource organizations shared ecosystem building tools, programs, and practices that participants could take back to their community.
- We spent time working in small groups to activate more teams building new ecosystem building tools – where solutions don’t yet exist.
- We also collaborated to refining and building further consensus around the mission, values, and vision of our emerging field.
- All the while, connecting attendees to a growing national network of peers and resource providers who can help ecosystem builders move their own work forward.
- We made lots of new friends supporting and learning about each other’s work.
- And we ate good food while exploring the sights and sounds of Kansas City.
