We are excited to bring to you, during Global Entrepreneurship Week 2021 powered by Western Health Advantage, a Sacramento Entrepreneurial State of the Union discussing our region's innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem! This event is set to launch us into a full week of events, workshops, and pitch competitions.

This virtual event will highlight a keynote speaker, Fay Horwitt, in a keynote presentation and fireside chat where she will discuss the E3 (Equity for Every Entrepreneur) framework to building an entrepreneurial ecosystem. She will also speak to how successful entrepreneurship development can lead to a thriving region and one that is equitable to all.

In addition to the keynote, this event will elevate key assets in the ecosystem through four Lightning Talks! The four assets elevated at this event will represent the four essential building blocks for any entrepreneurial ecosystem: people, programs, networks, and narratives.*

Fireside Chat:

  • Fay Horwitt- President & CEO of Forward Cities, Founder and Chief Belonging Officer at The Ecosystem Healer
  • Cameron Law - Executive Director of the Carlsen Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Sacramento Organizer for Global Entrepreneurship Week, Board Member of FourthWave

Lightning Talks: Four Essential Building Blocks

  1. There are four essential building blocks for any entrepreneurial ecosystem:
  2. The people that bring it to life
  3. The programs and places that educate and connect makers, dreamers, and doers
  4. The networks that create support structures that allow businesses to thrive

* The language comes from Forward Cities and their E3 Scorecard Framework
