Capacity building and knowledge sharing are key ingredients of local entrepreneurial ecosystems, enabling entrepreneurs to access relevant information and support new ventures. In the JUSTNature project, we are co-designing an 𝗘𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗲𝘂𝗿𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝗔𝗰𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝗰𝗲𝘀𝘀 (EAP) to connect multiple actors in local entrepreneurial ecosystems and start thinking about NBS.
The goal of EAP is to provide support for nature-based enterprises to grow and upscale in local contexts. Last week, our researcher Chiara Pellegrini presented the JUSTNature "Entrepreneurial Activation Process" at the EURAM23 Conference at the Trinity College Campus in Dublin. The conference was an excellent opportunity to share our JUSTNature preliminary results on EAP and we received the feedback that will be used to better structure EAP integrating prominent research on entrepreneurship and innovation.
