Create a Tighter Community and Promote Regionalism
These visionaries understand that the Basecamp Business Calendar Network is a fantastic way to create a tighter community and promote regionalism. Any organization in the region that uses the Basecamp Business Calendar becomes an access point to the entire Calendar Network, allowing entrepreneurs, business owners, investors, and professionals to get a complete picture of everything happening.
"Although our community had many organizations and peer networks focused on supporting the entrepreneur community, there was no process or mechanism in place for entrepreneurs or small business owners to identify who all these various support organizations and peer networks were... When we came across the Basecamp Business Calendar Network it seemed to be the perfect fit for what we wanted to accomplish.
"The Basecamp Business Calendar Network has accelerated the legitimacy of innovateknoxville.com. The Calendar gives people a practical and active reason to go to the Innovate* Knoxville site..."
Todd A. Napier, AICP, CEcD, Executive Vice President, The Development Corporation of Knox County
Build a Strong Regional Network
“It takes a strong regional network of resources and support to build and launch a new company. However, navigating that network can be a challenge for even the most seasoned entrepreneurs. The new Basecamp Business Calendar will help by providing an inventory of events in the region that entrepreneurs can easily search to find the events that will help them build their businesses.”
Stephen S. Tang, Ph.D., President and CEO, Science Center
Help Entrepreneurs Connect
“Part of our mission is to bring together the best of Pennsylvania's people, ideas, and technology to serve as a catalyst for advancing the state's knowledge-based economy. With the Basecamp Business Calendar, we help entrepreneurs and professionals connect with the people and resources in our region they need to grow their businesses. And it’s simple for us to feature our own events or highlight those that we believe are most important to our audience.”
RoseAnn B. Rosenthal, CEO and President, Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania (BFTP/SEP)
Grow a Culture of Entrepreneurship
“The greater Philadelphia region is a great place to expand, locate or start a business. There is a tremendous wealth of knowledge, resources and support available here to help businesses grow and prosper. The area’s top business leaders wanted a way for entrepreneurs and other business executives to easily find programs, events, resources and people so that they could leverage these many assets for business success. The Basecamp Business Calendar helps serve that need. It is a critical connecting point for our community, helping to grow the region’s culture of entrepreneurship and causing greater Philadelphia to become a more competitive region for business formation and innovation.“
