How Information Access Empowers

Entrepreneurial Ecosystems

Strong entrepreneurial ecosystems are the foundation of our economy - but building a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem requires intentional effort to make it accessible, data-driven, and easy to access

The Goal

Traits of a Strong Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

Information is Accessible

Information about the resources, support organizations, activity, and opportunities throughout your ecosystem must be easily accessible

Decisions are Data-Driven

From determining which new programs to launch to the curriculum for early-stage entrepreneurs, decisions about the ecosystem should be insight-informed

It's Easy to Get Involved

There needs to be clear entry points for people to get involved with - or more deeply connected to - regardless of their background or networks

Information is Accessible

Accessible Entrepreneurial Ecosystems Require Accessible Information

Entrepreneurial ecosystems are an ever-changing networks of entrepreneurs, mentors, support organizations, businesses, resources, and other opportunities & activity. Unless information about these assets is easy-to-access, it's impossible to navigate, showcase, or grow the ecosystem effectively


Mentors & Advisors

Startups & Small Businesses

Support Organizations

Decisions are Data-Driven

To Make Good Ecosystem Decisions, You Need Good Ecosystem Data

It's impossible to build an ecosystem if you don't know what is there to begin with. To make informed decisions about ecosystem building and development, you should start with solid data about your ecosystem and the assets within it
