About the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

The Alleghenies Entrepreneurial Ecosystem project was designed and funding was secured from ARC and others to support the effort. The Ecosystem incorporates existing resources, enhances existing resources, and develops new resources. 

There is no singular driver of an entrepreneurship ecosystem because an ecosystem is a dynamic, self-regulating network of many different types of actors. The Alleghenies Entrepreneurial Ecosystem is designed to be responsive to all types of entrepreneurs and includes entrepreneurial spaces, coaches, financing options, and a robust network of assistance programs in all facets of business development. Join the movement. #StartRHRN
