You are not working for us. You do not have to write a report on your activities. You do not have to check off boxes on a grant application. We are funding you because you do meaningful work, and we don't want to distract from that. We'll pay you & give you access to whatever resources we have - you do the work that matters to your community.
The impact of an ecosystem builder is not measured in # of exits, amount of capital brought into an ecosystem, or other vanity metrics that are the favorites of grants. Their impact is measured in the entrepreneurs they support and the community initiatives that they execute - it's on these metrics that applicants will be judged
The problem is lack of funding, so we're providing funding. However, just because we're quick to an idea doesn't mean we won't take time to think through the best way to structure it. We're taking time to convene with ecosystem builders to design the best possible program & focus our outreach to ensure it gets in front of the ecosystem builders who need it most
Meet with us to share a bit more about what you want EcoMap to do for your community. From the features you want to the data we collect, your platform is customized from the start to match the needs of your community or organization
Our Platform team will get to work on building out the features of your platform, and our Design team will work alongside you to make a platform that reflects the personality of your community or brand
Our Data team will focus on gathering the specific information that will populate your platform. We specialize in Resources & Support Orgs for entrepreneurs, but we can collect info about businesses, nonprofits, & more
Now - sit back and relax! EcoMap is full service, meaning that you do not need to allocate a ton of time to us. We'll do all the work of getting your platform ready, and then when it's time to launch, we'll work together to make sure it's a success
