Ecosystem building has emerged as a leading strategy for economic development and community revitalization. With the launch of the West Virginia Entrepreneurship Ecosystem (WVEE), the state is at the forefront of this growing movement. What began in 2018 as a coalition of the willing has developed
into a flourishing ecosystem of stakeholders. This network deploys three strategic activities to connect, co-create and educate on the importance of entrepreneurship-led economic development as a growth strategy for West Virginia.
