Engaging New Partners to Build Entrepreneurial Communities

Originally published in the Fall/Winter 2018 NACCE Journal, read our recent blog, written by Gary Schoeniger and Chris Thompson, president of Civic Collaboration Consultants, LLC.

"[W]e cannot rely solely on venture-backed high growth entrepreneurship or main street small business owners to revitalize our communities. We must encourage and support the development of entrepreneurial mindsets at all levels of society, in all sectors including public, private, academic, and nonprofit. In other words, we must work together to create entrepreneurial communities."
