Entrepreneurship Centers – Global Best and Worst Practices

October 4, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


Entrepreneurial ecosystem builders and entrepreneurs alike are constantly searching for best practices and resources to develop their diverse communities. Yet, no two entrepreneurial ecosystems are the same, and innovators often face difficulty in identifying tools that are specialized to work with their individual communities’ assets and weaknesses.

This session is dedicated to learning about Best and Worst Practices of Entrepreneurship Centers, Accelerators, Incubators, Co-Working Spaces, Hatcheries, and Meeting Spaces.  The moderators will ask the panelists below questions about the best and worst practices of building, managing, and growing such ecosystems. The questions will be tough!
