The 2015 George Washington University (GW) October Entrepreneurship Research & Policy Conference will explore the theme of Entrepreneurial Ecosystems: Understanding, Building, Implementing.
Entrepreneurs are a critical factor in building healthy societies. In order to cultivate an ecosystem where small businesses can launch and grow, industry stakeholders need to understand their activities and contributions within the industry, work together to foster mutually beneficial relationships, and ensure that entrepreneurs are supported with the right resources and tools to succeed. Identifying the need for this type of industry support, attention has been turned to creating entrepreneurial ecosystems to develop multifaceted support for entrepreneurial activity. Throughout the conference we will explore the concept of an entrepreneurial ecosystem – identifying who the key stakeholders are and how they can collaborate for success. We will also explore specific regions of the world that are pioneering growth in entrepreneurial ecosystems, specifically South Korea.
