Innovating Through Crisis:

Defining Technology-Enabled Ecosystems of the Future



The COVID-19 crisis has intensified government and business interest in ecosystem development, especially “entrepreneurship ecosystems,” seen as critical drivers in technology innovation, state and local economic development, and business resiliency. Fostering entrepreneurship has become a mainstay component of economic development plans in cities and countries worldwide. But the path to success is not always clear.

During this one day virtual event, you will learn more about different technology-enabled ecosystem platforms, their technical, governance and regulatory mechanisms, and case examples of how ecosystems have produced positive economic benefits. We will look specifically at how public –private partnerships have addressed complex development problems with innovative solutions. We will close looking ahead, asking how developing business ecosystems will help address new challenges of the future, such as COVID-19.
The event is by invitation only and offered at no charge. Registration is required. Zoom details will be provided prior to the conference.
