HELP US MAKE INNOVATION ACCESSIBLE
Accessibility is Limiting Innovation & Growth
Providing the platform and infrastructure for leading organizations to transform, scale & maximize their ecosystem opportunities globally in real time. Connecting knowledge to resources precisely when needed is the trifecta of alignment required to solving any problem in the world. Our technology is designed to provide the infrastructure for ecosystems to follow the Kauffman 7 ESHIP Goals.
We need diverse voices to lead us toward understanding and removing barriers for all. Only with a diverse group of leaders can we develop and distribute the insights and effective practices that are needed to support more underserved with a wide range of perspectives and to help more ecosystem builders lead inclusive change efforts in their own organizations and communities. With a truly open and inclusive ecosystem building field, we can model the change we want to see in the world, disrupt the status quo, and help build a resilient and cohesive economic system that allows us all to realize our full potential.
Foster coordination and collaboration efforts to connect ecosystem builders across networks. More collaboration within the field will require more communication across our networks.
To create more and better information sharing, relationship building, and real-time partnership formation between the various ecosystem builder networks, we must pave the way with field-wide communication channels and other infrastructure for coordination and collaboration.
Identify and develop better metrics and methods for ecosystem building. Identifying effective practices for ecosystem building requires robust data, rigorous analysis, and room for experimentation. The ecosystem building process can be nonlinear and multidimensional, and there is a need for measurements that are responsive to complexity and change.
We need more dialogue and stronger feedback loops between researchers and ecosystem builders. Collaborative research focused on developing the field of ecosystem building would allow the field to identify the principles and practices that are most effective for fostering successful innovation.
Ecosystem building requires perseverance. The work is arduous and often ambiguous, and it can take 20 years to see concrete results. Many practitioners – including grassroots organizers and change agents within large institutions – operate without adequate training, funding, or recognition of their work as a professional endeavor. In this void, they must often rely on their instincts, personal support systems, and ad hoc revenue streams. While dedication powers many of them to continue, practitioners across the field are burning out.
We must equip our practitioners for the long haul with a professional job description, training programs, ongoing peer support, and sustainable funding models. Together, we can ensure that ecosystem builders from all types of organizations have the professional recognition and resources they need to nurture this work and give it the time it requires to achieve results.
