CSR is helping the ecosystem of Entrepreneurial Support Organizations (ESOs) in Kent County to align data collection and analysis efforts. A major tool in that effort is the Startup Space platform.

Resource Compass

The Resource Compass is a central feature of Startup Space. It provides a directory of services, programs, and resources offered by ESOs. Some ESOs also use the Resource Compass to track small businesses themselves, such as the Transformando initiative of the West Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

Here's an example of a dynamic list of resources linked to Calvin University that are drawn from the Resource Compass database and embedded in this web page. If your organization would like to do something similar, please contact CSR.
