Growing Entrepreneurship in Transitioning Economies: Online course

Growing Entrepreneurship in Transitioning Economy


Beyond Silicon Valley: Growing Entrepreneurship in Transitioning Economies is an online course conducted by the Case Western Reserve University. In this course, explore how communities in transitioning economies around the world are working to enable the growth of entrepreneurship when the resources from the private sector alone are limited.

About the course

The path for entrepreneurs to grow their companies outside of well-developed entrepreneurial ecosystems like Silicon Valley is challenging. Most markets around the world do not look like Silicon Valley, and they never will. But there are other models to support new businesses. In transitioning markets (where entrepreneurs do not have much access to private sector financing), government officials, donors, and business leaders are experimenting with creative approaches to support the growth of entrepreneurs. Northeast Ohio, whose largest city is Cleveland, is one such community. During your time you will be exploring some of these innovative approaches.
