Workshop by DEEP Ecosystems on July 1st: "Check Your Ecosystem’s Health"

You can’t Grow what you Can’t Measure

You can’t grow what you can’t measure. Swisscontact and DEEP Ecosystems have joined forces to develop a free and self-service toolkit that empowers startup hubs all around the world to measure the health of their ecosystems. The toolkit supports managers of startup programs, university incubators, research transfer organizations, ecosystem builders and policy makers to track the progress of their ecosystem build-up.

In this workshop, we will introduce participants to ecosystem thinking and, in an interactive and fun way, work hands-on with the Ecosystem Health Check toolkit. If you are part of an innovation-oriented community, this workshop will be useful to better understand how it works and which adjustments help you to further strengthen it.

Join this session to connect with international peer ecosystem builders and take home important skills to grow your local community, such as:

  • Open source/knowledge/data movement
  • Co-working community
  • Social entrepreneurship movement
  • Startup support organization
  • Corporate & business innovation
  • University & school business incubator
  • Open innovation program
  • Innovation & tech-focused event
  • Government agency for local development & innovation
  • Public policy & advocacy for sustainable innovation

We co-host these workshops around the world and received phenomenal feedback from places such as Copenhagen (https://youtu.be/YKHxCe3-CtU), Berlin, or Phnom Penh (https://startupsandplaces.com/phnom-penhs-startup-scene).

Location: Workshop room, Luxexpo The Box, Luxembourg
