What do you get when you connect entrepreneurs, technologists, social enterprises, policymakers, and new thinkers from six major US cities and allow them to share business stories and compare their technology experiences?
In early 2016, Comcast NBCUniversal and Technical.ly, the network of tech news sites, set out on the Tomorrow Tour. This multi-city event series brought together entrepreneurs and technology and innovation influencers to share their business and technology stories, helping to connect entrepreneurship communities and fuel further startup and small business growth within each city.
So, what do you get when you connect entrepreneurs, technologists, social enterprises, policymakers, and new thinkers from six major US cities and allow them to share business stories and compare their technology experiences? You get a plethora of insight into the best practices and innovation strategies that drive today’s startup and small business communities.
Businesses today, especially startups and small businesses, operate, think, and scale completely differently than they have in previous generations. The technology and the tools available to help start and grow a company are quickly evolving, and the individuals involved in these businesses are more eager than ever to connect and engage on their experiences.
Leveraging the conversations, reports, and stories shared on the Tomorrow Tour, event leaders produced the Tomorrow Toolkit, an all-inclusive ebook that expands on the ideas and advice generated from this event series. The toolkit outlines everything a new founder needs to know about today’s fast-changing startup climate, from how to test your idea to how to properly write a business plan to how to tell your story.
Growing an idea into a business can be daunting, but through the stories and experiences of other entrepreneurs, new founders and business leaders can inject best practices into their strategies and help fuel startup communities locally and across the country.
