We all need a little bit of help to leave 2020 behind and look ahead and start 2021 with energy, motivated and excited. In the context of innovation entrepreneurship, especially for those that have the big responsibilities to create the conditions to generate more jobs, more innovative businesses and therefore more economic growth. We can’t do ecosystem development alone. We can’t do it with a silo thinking while the field just keeps developing too slow. It’s time to do things with a different approach, based on a better understanding of the ecosystem and designing things with ecosystem actors, for scale, for sustainability, for reusing and with an open approach to help to enable and increase true collaboration.
Because of this, we have now designed a first privately led, global "collaborative ecosystem development project” that is part of a bigger and longer journey towards ecosystem digitalisation but starting as simple as possible by collaboratively developing and deploying an ecosystem mapping application as a shared project, after proper validation for years with many ecosystem builders and related actors all around the world, who see in this application one of the key modules to improve ecosystems performance.
The core idea is that we have planned and calculated the direct and realistic costs of the project, and then, the more ecosystems will join, the cheaper it will get per each ecosystem. While at the same time, all participating ecosystems get the full outcomes and benefit from collaborative learning, while also being able to adjust/localise key aspects from local perspective as needed.
We are looking at initiating this with a batch of 2-10 qualified ecosystems in Q1 2021 and we would love to see your ecosystem joining in this new journey with Startup Commons and really leading digital transformation and standard development for ecosystem development together with other ecosystems globally.
Help is here. Together we can do more with less and faster!
