Entrepreneurship & Innovation

The LESMD Environment

Innovation, as the specific tool of entrepreneurism, exists in circumstances where a number of core elements are present, among which are cross-organizational networks. These networks may be composed of both the private sector and the government sector and include colleges, universities and non-profit entities.

A number of organizations in the LESMD Region are assisting to foster an environment of innovation in which the creativity and solution-oriented energy of entrepreneurism may thrive. The industry sectors in which they operate range from agriculture to 3-D manufacturing, from water filtration to robotics. Throughout the process, from incubator and proof of concept through investment and commercialization, their goals are ultimately focused on solutions which contribute to the resiliency of the LESMD economy.
