The National e2 Practitioners Network is comprised of economic development practitioners and consultants working to grow entrepreneurial talent and build smart ecosystems to support entrepreneurship in North America. The Network is a no-cost way to access and employ the time-tested Energizing Entrepreneurs (e2) Development Framework and accompanying continually updated e2 University resources in exchange for allowing e2 to learn from your use of the materials so that we can continually improve the framework and resources for others.
