Entrepreneurialism is not for the faint of heart. The capacity and willingness to create, develop, organize and manage a business venture in the hopes of success is risky. Entrepreneurial spirit is characterized by innovation and risk-taking and is an essential part of an regional economy's ability to succeed in an ever changing and increasingly competitive global marketplace.
Journey to Growth focuses on facilitating regional entrepreneurial growth by providing resources and creating connections that foster dynamic growth opportunities for startups.
