We want to work with you!

As manifested in its core mission, EERN is designed to supplement existing organizations, initiatives, and research endeavors. EERN, like any other organization, breathes and grows with its members and partners. We believe in excellence and the power of collaboration and discussion.

EERN provides a wide range of benefits to individual members and institutional partners, from tailored support to bespoke events. Together, we want to understand ecosystems and how regions can produce entrepreneurship and growth. Become a part of EERN and work with us!

Institutional partnerships

Leadership via supplementation instead of substitution is one of EERN’s fundamental pillars. Developing a vibrant and innovative network of active members and institutional partners forms the basis for our success. We connect people, open up new opportunities for research and knowledge exchange and help fostering ecosystems around the world.

We offer tailored models for institutional partnerships as well as two types of individual memberships, student (free) and professional (£25/year). All memberships are valid for one year, unless specified otherwise and don’t renew themselves automatically. We will get in touch before your membership expires and give you the opportunity for a renewal. Partnerships are negotiated on a case-by-case basis.

Contact us via email or use the contact form for any questions you might have. You can submit your membership form here.

We are growing our vibrant and innovative community of institutional partners. In addition to our individual members, we work closely with institutions to realise events and promote the network.

Benefits for our partners include the reputational benefits of being part of the forefront of ecosystem research and access to an incredible network of researchers, entrepreneurs, policy makers, and so on, to work with you on your problems. EERN happily facilitates the discussion, whether you’re planning an event with us, want to disseminate information.

We look forward to exploring opportunities for a partnership with you, regardless whether you already have an idea of how we can design a partnership of mutual benefit or not. Different types of partnerships are available, such as project or acceleration partnerships, among others.
