Webinar:  “Data Dive: Indicators of Entrepreneurship”

The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation is hosting the “Data Dive: Indicators of Entrepreneurship” webinar at 11 a.m. CT on June 7, and you are invited to join!

This spring, the Kauffman Foundation released updates to our entrepreneurship indicators, highlighting the latest entrepreneurial trends in both the New Employer Business series and the Kauffman Indicators of Early-Stage Entrepreneurship. The data sparked conversations about the status of the economy and entrepreneurial activity this past year, particularly around what these trends mean for our cities and communities today.

The upcoming webinar is a time to continue those conversations and learn about how these studies impact the entrepreneurial field — informed directly by the researchers themselves. Join Robert Fairlie, professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz and Jessica Looze, Director of Knowledge Creation and Research at the Kauffman Foundation, as they break down key data highlights from the reports and share how these studies are important to understand the current entrepreneurial climate.

The webinar is free and is a great opportunity to hear first-hand about the most recent entrepreneurial research. At the end of the discussion, there will be a Q&A period to ask Rob and Jessica any questions you may have.

Entrepreneurship Issues Forum

We invite you participate in our upcoming Entrepreneurship Issues Forum, Designing and Disseminating Research with Communities in Mind: Exploring Community-Engaged Research Translation. Community-engaged research translation and knowledge co-production are approaches to research that value community voice and make meaningful contributions to solving problems and changing systems. At the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, we are striving to better understand existing examples of this work and the practices that put communities and stakeholders at the center of research design, translation, and knowledge production in order to enable inclusive prosperity.

Please join us on June 30 at 10:00-11:00 a.m. CT to learn about these methods and consider how you can begin to work with communities and stakeholders, apply these methods in your own research, and explore the use of these approaches in entrepreneurship research and economic development research more broadly.
