The Springfield area has many great components to start and grow small businesses that includes things like courses, training and development, annual events, shared work space and drop-in entrepreneurial centers.

An entrepreneurial ecosystem is a dynamic set of individuals and organizations directly or indirectly supporting the creation and growth of new businesses.
