Blackstone Entrepreneurs Network
Supercharging Regional Economies
Blackstone Entrepreneurs Network is an initiative to strengthen existing entrepreneurial ecosystems in struggling areas by building a network of master entrepreneurs and connecting them with a pipeline of potential high growth ventures.

Successful regions of entrepreneurial activity, such as Silicon Valley and Boston, have high-density populations that facilitate interaction between entrepreneurs and peers, mentors, venture capitalists as well as financial experts. Struggling regions often lack this geographic density and natural connectivity.

How It Works
The Blackstone Entrepreneurs Network recruits a team of veteran “master entrepreneurs” to identify marketable innovations and start-ups out of area universities and research institutions with the greatest potential to become high-growth companies.
