Entrepreneurial Ecosystems and the Poor: What are the Needs, Where are the Gaps?
Time & Location
Nov 16, 2022, 11:00 AM – 12:15 PM
About the event
Significant emphasis is placed today on the role of entrepreneurial ecosystems in fostering high levels of successful venture creation at the community and country levels. Yet, there is evidence to suggest these ecosystems are preoccupied with facilitating high growth, scalable enterprises, and do much less to support the ventures of those in poverty and disadvantaged circumstances. This webinar will explore this issue, with attention devoted to the distinct needs of these entrepreneurs and how ecosystems can be adapted to better support their ventures.
