Government trade and investment agencies, industry bodies, entrepreneurs and business need access to effective tools that will help them enhance opportunities for trade, investment, entrepreneurship and economic sustainability.
Meaningful economic development needs to come from grass roots activities i.e. connecting entrepreneurs, SMEs, business owners, legislators, and other organizations together to network and share knowledge.
Different types of entrepreneurs require different resources and Policymakers should consider gaps in the local ecosystem and ways in which different programs can be connected to each other.
Programs need to be created to help entrepreneurs form networks, build mentoring relationships and engage in peer learning.
Many entrepreneurs often operate solely at the local level, and regions are strengthened when entrepreneurs connect with one another.
