|What is an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem?|
What is an entrepreneurial ecosystem? It is the new buzzword/phrase in entrepreneur assistance. To put in more easily understood terms, it is a local business support system.
Basically it refers to the partners of a local area that provide assistance and encouragement to the individual entrepreneur or an entrepreneur's team.
Entrepreneurs are more successful when they operate in an environment where partners are available to encourage them, provide the guidance and assistance they need, along with a government that is supportive and does not burden them.
An improved entrepreneurial ecosystem for San Angelo area is what the local economic development partnership group is facilitating with the soon to be opened Business Resource Center (BRC) facility in downtown San Angelo. For more information on the BRC see http://www.cvbiz.org/brc.html, or you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
