Resource inventory

Monday, January 4, 2016

As part of the Capital Region Slingshot Project, Valley Vision prepared an inventory of
entrepreneurs and innovation resources, as well as service providers. This resource
inventory was prepared to help us better understand what assets do exist, as well as
understand and identify the gaps that can be addressed through the Slingshot Project. The
need to better understand and improve our entrepreneurism ecosystem is a need that
was identified by Next Economy. The six core business clusters of Direct Entrepreneur
Support, Agriculture & Food Production, Clean Energy Technology, Education &
Knowledge Creation, Advanced Manufacturing, General Technology and Small Business
Services, Networks, Funding and Other Resources were identified by Next Economy. It is a living document that will be updated periodically to reflect changes in the economic ecosystem.
