If ‘entrepreneur’ is the word for someone who starts up an enterprise, what do you call someone whose focus is building ‘eco-systems’ to support the emergence of many enterprises?  Network entrepreneur might fit. But the term also applies to a new perspective on pro-social entrepreneurship, organisational development, and movement building.

For the last seven years, Jay Tompt has been exploring these dimensions in his work at different geographic scales – local, regional, national, and international. And the challenges: how does one create value and derive a livelihood in this context?

This one-day workshop will cover theory, practice, tools, and real-life examples.

— Leadership and innovation.

— Helpful bits of network theory.

— Network mapping and other tools.

— Relevant case studies.

— A new understanding of networks and value creation.

— A new confidence in building productive relationships.

— Tools for building enterprising ecosystems.

— New friends and collaborators.

— Pro-social entrepreneurs and innovators.

— Economic development officers.

— Community economic development practitioners.

Jay Tompt is a co-founding member of the Totnes REconomy Project, Jay is also playing leading roles in several network-building initiatives - Devon Convergence, the international REconomy Community of Practice and CtrlShift: Emergency Summit for Change. Prior to moving to the UK from San Francisco, Jay spent 10 years as entrepreneur and consultant in the ‘green business movement'.
