Harry S Truman Coordinating Council Entrepreneurship Assessment & Strategy

The first objective of this report is to provide a better understanding of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the HSTCC region. This is achieved through a process of extensive information-gathering both from secondary data sources such as the U.S. Census Bureau, and from knowledgeable people within the region, such as entrepreneurs, bankers, and economic development professionals who have direct experience with the ecosystem. The second objective is to develop actionable recommendations based on the findings from the first objective. These recommendations will help guide the region’s efforts towards fostering long-term economic and entrepreneurial development initiatives.
