Startup ecosystems thrive when people work together and the resources are connected. The new emerging role of ecosystem building is about how the people and the resources in a community work together instead of just focusing on the individual parts of a community. The role of an entrepreneurial ecosystem builder is to think about how this system works together.
Startup Champions Network is a group of ecosystem builders from across the country who support entrepreneurial ecosystem builders by providing them with the tools, resources, knowledge and support systems they need to build thriving and inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystems in their own community.
We believe that thriving and inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystems should exist in all communities in order to drive economic opportunity and independence for all. Startup Champions Network is THE organization for entrepreneurial ecosystem builders. We provide the connections, resources, and professional development they need to cultivate thriving and inclusive communities. Check out the video to learn more.
