    PDW description: This Professional Development Workshop will focus on ecosystem metrics and policy initiatives to foster the development of healthy entrepreneurial ecosystems. As the entrepreneurial ecosystem construct has emerged, policy makers have been requesting metrics to understand and measure this complex phenomenon. During this PDW, ecosystem experts will share the state-of-art of entrepreneurial ecosystem building, its multidimensional nature and highlight future research avenues. Attendees get the opportunity to discuss with ecosystem experts, facilitators and policymakers on research ideas and current developments or contexts (including Covid-19's impacts). We offer a chance for in-depth conversation where attendees can share ideas with our best research minds on ecosystems, people deeply engaged in entrepreneurship policy, and leading experts on growing entrepreneurial communities. We have recruited a diverse array of experts including experience at connecting and facilitating ecosystem discussions. Most important, we are welcoming practitioners and champions, including members from Kauffman's ESHIP initiative. The entrepreneurial world (and the data) believes healthy economic communities grow by activities driven by the entrepreneurs. Top-down, institution-focused approaches are misleading at best, rather than a bottom-up, networks-focused approach. As policymakers hear that message, they need and want to better understand these processes. Yet, most of our research seems top-down and institutions-centric. Meanwhile, the needs of the entrepreneurs and the desires of the policymakers have not gone unnoticed by our colleagues. But how do we get started at studying entrepreneurial ecosystems in directions that serve policy and practice? Why not get together and learn from each other?
