Dave was invited, based on his engagement with Communities of the Future, to join the ESHIP Summit, June 21-23 in Kansas City, MO., as a member of the COTF cohort group.  This cohort group of futurists contributed transformational and  a futurers generative perspective to the discussions at the Summit specific to entrepreneurial ecosystem development.

The Kauffman Foundation asked attendees to empower the makers, the doers, and the dreamers of our society.  The Foundation believes that everyone has the fundamental human right to turn their idea into an entrepreneurial reality, regardless of who they are or where they’re from, with zero barriers in the way.

The ESHIP Summit is the Kauffman Foundation’s inaugural gathering of ecosystem builders and leaders fighting to make that happen at scale in their communities across the US.

Aquarian is currently in discussions with COTF collaborators and the Summit conveners at the Kauffman Foundation regarding follow-up activities.
