CORPORATE & ENTREPRENEURIAL PARTNERSHIPS
Economic growth through entrepreneurship is the only true “win-win” economic development scenario that does not (1) take jobs/companies from an outside community or (2) use community dollars to pay out high tax incentives for business attraction.
In fact, entrepreneurs create jobs with net employment growth of 8.6% (large firms lose more jobs than they create!). Entrepreneurs are responsible for 67% of all inventions and 95% of radical innovations since WWII. Cities that have invested in their entrepreneurial community have experienced employment increases of 35-71% (Littleton, Colorado; Kansas City, Missouri; Fairfield, Ohio). The one common ingredient in the success of those markets has been the engagement of large corporations (Big Cos). Entrepreneurs offer creative and responsive solutions to industry challenges, increasing the Big Co’s capacity to innovate and adapt.
The healthcare sector has more to gain from embracing budding innovation than any other industry. Constant advances in technology, care delivery, payment models, etc. lead to an ever-changing environment of disruption and competition. Entrepreneurial collaborations and partnerships provide the competitive advantage needed to succeed in today’s fast-paced environment
