You’ve heard the word “ecosystem” for years, but what about the term “ecosysteming”? It was recently defined as “the fostering of inclusive economic development via entrepreneurship.”
In a guest column from the always interesting WRAL TechWire, the Executive Director of RIot, a Raleigh-based Internet of Things users group, writes: “Without question, there are great stories to tell about start-ups and entrepreneurship in the state (North Carolina). However, what can be questioned is how well the support resources in North Carolina are working in a collaborative, strategically aligned way. It is one thing to promote good things happening independently within a geographic region; it’s another to promote outcomes resultant of a coordinated effort. Are we really coming together, or are our entrepreneurial achievements the combined result of co-located but siloed efforts? There are a few measures to consider as we attempt to answer this question.”
