Canadian Centre For Economic Gardening
Economic Gardening is a complex, entrepreneurial alternative to traditional economic development strategies that focuses on growing companies from local entrepreneurs rather than luring companies from other communities. While nurturing entrepreneurs in order to grow the economy might suggest pastoral ideology, Economic Gardening is a science-backed economic development program that uses sophisticated corporate-level tools.
The Canadian Centre for Economic Gardening is a full-scale program to help entrepreneurs compete in the global economy. The focus is on entrepreneurs because the tools and services of Economic Gardening leverage specific aspects associated with high-growth, innovative companies with ten to a hundred employees.
