Entrepreneurial Ecosystems Made Possible by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation  

The field of entrepreneurship research has primarily focused on the individual, not the supporting ecosystem. The Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater area has been proven to support new venture, but our community needs to know what we can do to improve. This academic study of the entrepreneurial ecosystem hopes to provide pragmatic answers to improving our business environment.
