Stakeholder and community engagement

Stakeholder Engagement encompasses identifying and connecting with individuals and organisations who may be interested in, involved in, or affected by your venture in some way. This group of stakeholders is often referred to as a network. The earlier you start identifying and establishing relationships in your network, the more likely your venture is to succeed. Building a strong network can be very valuable – both for you and for the stakeholders – but it takes time to navigate and nurture those relationships.

Industry Ecosystem

Build a network with key stakeholders who are already active in the space you want to operate in: Industry associations and institutions, local government, competitors, suppliers, distribution channels, marketing agencies.
