About the Entrepreneurship Ecosystems Work Stream

Our work tracks innovation economy trends and entrepreneurial activity and improves understanding of the experiences, success factors and barriers impacting Canada’s entrepreneurs, as well as the tools and resources they need to succeed — regardless of their region or background.

Our innovation-driven economy demands a steady stream of entrepreneurial talent to identify opportunities, take risks, innovate and contribute to growth. However, to achieve success, entrepreneurs require a complex ecosystem including customers, risk capital and a favourable policy environment.

Canada needs better information on its entrepreneurs, the ecosystems in which they operate, and the impact they are having, and it needs evidence-based policies and programs to support them and to broaden access to entrepreneurship opportunities.
