How to Have Difficult Conversations

Conversations about inclusion in ecosystem building can be difficult because they bring up issues that may become contentious and polarizing. In Part 2 of our series on Overlooked Aspects of Inclusion in Ecosystem Building, we have a conversation with author Meg Bolger about how the art of facilitation can make these conversations more effective and productive.

Enoch is the founder of CO.STARTERS, and cofounder of  The Company Lab and the GIGTANK accelerator. He played a key role in accelerating the renaissance of Chattanooga, TN by growing a thriving community of support for both world class startups and creative entrepreneurs. Enoch has been involved with startups since his grade school popsicle stand put the local ice cream truck out of business, with his latest adventure being a luxury treehouse eco-retreat, TreetopHideaways.

Enoch’s dynamic workshops provide a unique perspective to events where he offers insight on such topics as:

  • Entrepreneurial Ecosystem development: how communities can build pipelines of support to help entrepreneurs of all kinds at every stage of the startup journey
  • Stages of community growth: how community needs change over time as the ecosystem grows and matures
  • Growing grassroots community efforts: how to move from grassroots entrepreneurial initiatives to sustainable support
  • The importance of lifestyle businesses to an ecosystem: In an age where often entrepreneurship = tech, communities are missing a huge opportunity to support a large and impactful segment of the ecosystem.
