How is philanthropy helping to promote entrepreneurship and fuel startup communities? What kinds of investments are donors making in their regional areas and what are they seeking to achieve with these investments? What do we know about the impact of these efforts? What are some of the metrics and data that have been collected to assess impact? Where are the gaps in evaluation and analysis? Are there case studies that showcase lessons learned? What are the promising efforts on the horizon?
Join us in Detroit, where local and national funders have embarked on the bold goal of returning Detroit to its position as a global economic leader. Recognizing entrepreneurship as a powerful means of diversifying and strengthening the region’s economy, they have invested in building a network of support for entrepreneurs across southeast Michigan. What can be learned from the ongoing Detroit experience and in turn, what can Detroit learn from others?
