Startups to Scaleups
Joan Siefert Rose, President, Council for Entrepreneurial Development
Cities and regions around the country and the world are building hubs for entrepreneurship. While many of these hubs have experienced some success in growing an early-stage entrepreneurial ecosystem, Joan Siefert Rose argues that few have considered how they can support those companies in a way that will allow them to scale to their full potential. Joan will share Council for Entrepreneurial Development's vision for helping companies scale and describe how that approach can be modeled by other entrepreneurial hubs hoping to see their companies meet with great success.
