Welcome to the latest roundup of news from the entrepreneurial ecosystem building field. First up is a bit of housekeeping. Starting with this month I’m switching to a bi-monthly format for the newsletter. Maybe it’s due to the pandemic easing its grip on us, or the oncoming summer, but open rates and click-through rates on this newsletter have dropped a lot over the past few weeks. So, engagement is down, as is the time and energy I’m able to put into EB Hub, so the logical thing to do is scale back somewhat for now.
