This presentation introduces a yearlong project, funded by the Appalachian Regional Commission, to document and strengthen entrepreneurial ecosystems across Appalachia with the purpose of helping local leaders better support local startups and growing business ventures. Key project components include:
• A Regional Ecosystem Map and Resource Guide to help aspiring and current business owners to identify support resources and local business networks.
• Data Dashboards that provide snapshots of entrepreneurial activity for all counties in Appalachia.
• Case Studies of what works in building entrepreneurial ecosystems in Appalachia.
Results will be especially helpful to those interested in economic development and for those working in rural communities.
