New Voices of Ecosystems Episode Out Now: Andrew Jason on Entrepreneurial Ecosystems and Agriculture Innovation

In this episode of the Voices of Ecosystem podcast, Julian speaks with Andrew Jason, Director of Ecosystem at Emerging Prairie, about his experiences with business ecosystems and the importance of collaboration in building successful communities. Emerging Prairie is a non-profit organization that connects the entrepreneurial community in North Dakota. They work with startups, investors, service providers, universities, and large corporations to create a thriving ecosystem that supports innovation and growth.

During the podcast, Andrew shares his insights on entrepreneurial, technology and innovation ecosystems. He emphasizes that a healthy ecosystem of connected resources is vital to the success of the entrepreneurial community.

Here are some key takeaways from this episode:

  1. The importance of building a connected and collaborative ecosystem: According to Andrew, a business ecosystem is a network of individuals, companies, and institutions that work together to support each other's growth and development. 
  2. Entrepreneurial ecosystems are particularly important in smaller areas where there may not be as much of an established business community. They can help create connections and resources to support startups and other innovative ventures. 
  3. Agriculture is an industry that can greatly benefit from a strong business ecosystem. There are a lot of opportunities for innovation and technology to improve farming practices and increase efficiency. 
  4. Finally, it's important to recognize that building a business ecosystem is a long-term process that requires patience and persistence. It takes time to develop trust and build strong relationships, but the rewards can be significant in terms of creating a vibrant and thriving business community.
