ESHIP Summit

Sep 15 - Sep 29, 2020 — Online
10:00 am - 5:00 pm CST

Hosted by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the 2020 ESHIP Summit–the fourth convening that brings together entrepreneurial ecosystem builders and those that support them–will be held virtually over three days September 15-16 and 29.

The gathering aims to bring the ESHIP community together and lift up entrepreneurial ecosystem building as a key aspect of rebuilding and reinventing our communities in these times of unprecedented challenge. On day one, participants will hear from thought leaders, experts, researchers, policymakers, and experienced practitioners from many sectors and walks of life to better understand entrepreneurship, ecosystem building, and the economy in the present moment.

Then, they will learn about tools, programs, policies, and practices that can bolster entrepreneurial ecosystem building efforts in their community as well as engage in one-on-one, connecting, small group conversations, breakout sessions, and interactive content/workshops.

Finally, two weeks later, the event transitions from activities in local communities to developing the professional field of entrepreneurial ecosystem building.

We hope to “see” you there!
