This group identified key elements to focus on as individual components and as interrelated topics, and formed Working Groups to look more closely at: Agriculture, Business and Economic Development, Workforce and Education, Quality of Life and Sustainable Communities. These issue-focused work groups represent the key elements of the entrepreneurial ecosystem -- the pillars that support local innovation and long-term business growth & prosperity.
