ACE: Associations Catalyzing Entrepreneurship 

Building a Culture of Entrepreneurship: An ACE Conversation 

Entrepreneurship in associations is about adding value — to our members and to society. However, an entrepreneurial mindset may not come naturally to most associations — there are many reasons why but often, it boils down to culture. So let’s get together and talk culture
  • What does a culture of entrepreneurship look like?
  • Can a culture really pivot — when and how?
  • Who can drive a culture change — the CEO, the board, the executive team, the new hires…?
  • How do you get the right people on board?  
  • How do you deal with “legacy” folks reluctant to give up the old ways?

What are your culture thoughts and questions? Do you have a specific culture challenge you’d like to discuss with your colleagues? Sign up for the next ACE meeting on June 26 and we can continue the conversation.
