iiGrowth Visits Top Entrepreneurship and Incubation Centers



Written by: Gustav Plato

Business ecosystems are economic communities that produce goods and services that have value to customers.  They are made up of interacting organizations such as the customers, producers and their business partners, financial institutions/venture capital, and government.  They also include academia.

As part of iiGrowth’s efforts in emergent thinking for our clients on how to evolve business ecosystems as a foundation for growth strategy, we visited with several academic instituions the week of 26 November, 2007.

iiGrowth had an opportunity to visit with some of the pre-eminent thought leaders that are devoted to new research and hands-on support to emerging and medium sized businesses.  Tremendous work is being done right here in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area by several leading higher education institutions including George Mason University, George Washington University, University of Maryland College Park, and University of Maryland Baltimore County.

Our site visits included the following highly respected individuals and centers:

Each of these individuals and institutions are thought leaders in their field with an emphasis on helping emerging and medium sized businesses both here in the United States and Internationally.  From Strategy to Execution, their experience and knowledge, helps entrepreneurs better understand how to plan and implement strategy on a rapid scale.  Importantly, they value relationships, networks, and collaboration as the cornerstone for maturing business ideas.  It is precisely because of this philosophy, that iiGrowth visited with these individuals.  They educate and coach current entrepreneurs and the new class of entrepreneurs being groomed at each of the higher learning institutions.
