Iulia Stroila has published an article on entrepreneurial ecosystem wellbeing in 'empower' magazine from enpact, a Berlin-headquartered non-profit organisation empowering entrepreneurship, ecosystems and international cooperation. At present, enpact's network consists of 2500+ startups, 600+ mentors and experts and 150+ support organisations in 30+ countries. 10000+ jobs have been created as a direct result of enpact's work with startups.
The article "The importance of wellbeing for entrepreneurs in a startup ecosystem" takes a closer look at Berlin's startup ecosystem through wellbeing indicators. In the last decade, the wellbeing and health of individuals have gained prominence across the world. In this vein, global leaders have already started initiatives that place people's wellbeing and mental health as a societal goal and a national success measure. The latest policy developments show a significant shift in attitudes towards economic and social progress and point out the need to change how we measure and perceive entrepreneurial ecosystems.
The article reflects the effort of S2B research associates and PhD candidates to defuse the knowledge generated in different research projects to practitioners and broader communities of stakeholders.
In her research, Iulia Stroila focuses on the wellbeing of entrepreneurial ecosystems-the ability of ecosystems to support the quality, diversity, resilience, and opportunity and choice provision for entrepreneurship. She is also interested in how ecosystems worldwide can become more focused on social, sustainable, and high-growth forms of entrepreneurship.
