The project is being performed for Dalhousie University’s Norman Newman Centre for Entrepreneurship (NNCE) in support o their project to strengthen the Nova Scotia’s economy’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. The basis and driver for the overall approach employed for this analysis is a proprietary analytical tool– the CommonWeal DealMapper – that delivers big data-driven detailed insight into the dynamics of entrepreneur, investor, and company networks that power new value creation within economies.
