This model is a work-in-progress being developed to help formulate a model to implement real world strategies towards growing an entrepreneurial ecosystem/community in a place not necessarily known for such things.
It is based on research and real world success in New Orleans, Omaha, Kansas City, Boulder, Nashville and Des Moines and is currently being lab tested in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City region of Iowa. It is meant to be a broad based model that can be used to implement location-specific solutions that takes into account local resources and conditions in the particular city.
Feedback, constructive criticism and comments are welcome and encouraged.
We are available to present, share or discuss this at your event, organization, conference or individually.
Please feel free to contact us.
