DESERT REDEFINED.
We bet you didn’t expect to see all this happening in the desert.
Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Event
April 23, 2014

On April 10th over 60 ambassadors attended our Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Program. Panelist, Jeff Saville, Courtney Klein, Tishin Donkersley, Gabe Hyams, and Francisco Cervera highlighted what it meant to be an entrepreneurial here in the Greater Phoenix region.  Jeff Saville from CEI and Courtney Klein from SeedSpot both represented the incubators, which help smaller companies grow. Gabe Hymans from Pinnacle Transplant Technologies and Francisco Cervera from eMoney Pool show that it is possible to start in an incubator space and still be successful. With this event, we wanted to show that Phoenix is a great place to be an innovator or entrepreneur and these stories are perfect examples that young, start-up companies are actually doing well here due to their success in the business incubators.
