How do you build an entrepreneurial ecosystem?

The top-down approach

Invest in education to develop the talent pool.

Create access to capital.

Build incubators, accelerators, co-working spaces etc.

Develop mentorship programs.

These are necessary, but they are not enough.

The bottom-up approach, create a community

Create events to bring people together.

Facilitate networking within talent pools.

Produce conferences to try and broaden your reach.

Sometimes, if you’re lucky, it takes off on its own, but other ecosystems need a helping hand.

We’ve found a method for energizing ecosystems and building community that succeeds because…

It’s led by entrepreneurs.

It’s authentic.

It connects people globally.

The power of storytelling

Stories are how we learn and connect

Stories for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs. We don’t just repeat the advice of Jobs, Gates or Buffet, we tell the stories of relatable entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds, showing aspiring entrepreneurs that the people building the future are people just like them.

Highlight both the joys and challenges of entrepreneurship. Press releases and news bites don’t show you what the entrepreneurial lifestyle is really like, but we’re not scared to leave the story a little unpolished so the truth shines through.

Share beyond your community. Local interest is great, and so is making sure the players in your space are aware of each other, but for your ecosystem to grow and attract new talent, your story needs to reach a larger audience.
