The 2020 ESHIP Summit: Building Inclusive Entrepreneurial Communities

September 15 - September 16

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on September 29, 2020 at 12:00 am

In the wake of COVID-19, many of our current entrepreneurial support systems are being overwhelmed and sometimes simply feel inadequate. Furthermore, our current economic systems leave out many people. Events of the last few months have made this even more clear.

Many are starting to see the need and urgency to foster more inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystems, and that no one organization or individual can do that work alone − a systems approach is needed. The current situation calls for what leaders (like you!) have been championing well before this moment. At the 2020 ESHIP Summit, we’ll explore how to do things differently to ensure our communities are vibrant, prosperous, and resilient now and in the future.

The virtual format of this year’s Summit welcomes participants attending for the first time and those who have attended before – there is something for every level of experience.

This event will take place September 15-16 and 29.

The deadline to register is September 7.
