Since 2017, more than 1,000 individuals have contributed to the development and the pursuit of the ESHIP Goals, a set of collectively-developed objectives that will help us all work together in order to strengthen the field of entrepreneurial ecosystem building. Achieving these goals will strengthen our profession and accelerate its adoption in more communities, reducing barriers entrepreneurs face around the world.
If you want to contribute to growing our professional field, please join us for a pre-Sumit ESHIP Goal Hackathon, on Monday, June 28th, just prior to the kick-off of the ESHIP Summit. We’ll form small teams — like any hackathon — and spend the day working together to find ways we can solve for the ESHIP Goals. We’ll further refine a vision for this emerging professional field, lay some groundwork to establish standards and values for how we do our work and form project teams to turn some of the ideas at the core of the ESHIP Goals into tangible products during and after the event. The day will be highly interactive, action oriented and a lot of fun.
Though we’ll build on the work done at the 2017-2019 ESHIP Summits, previous participation at these events is not required to participate in the Hackathon — just a willingness to roll up your sleeves, learn from others, and work collaboratively to help position ecosystem building for wider adoption in more communities.
