An Advanced Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

Harnessing entrepreneurial inspiration, initiative and commitment is vital to remaining competitive in a global marketplace.

A key component of any resilient community is the ability to identify and cultivate inherent talents found locally toward job creation and industry diversification.

A partnership with COventures lends access to technologies and strategies found primarily in high-tech and high-finance hubs, providing NCG the ability to help prepare anyone for the rigors of entrepreneurship. Concurrently, companies also use COventures platforms to challenge and recruit ideal employees, helping avoid costly mis-hires. Our Entrepreneurship Development program offers tools and processes providing any entrepreneur, organization, company or municipality leading technologies and strategies aimed at actualizing latent talent, regionally — retention is a vital ingredient in resilient communities. The program provides for more accessible entrepreneurial ecosystems, relevant and scalable through open source innovation and social engagement, automated and intuitive via machine learning.

Developed by NCG Managing Director Scott McIntyre, the program utilizes a  3-stage process serving users  “From Concept to Capital” and guiding entrepreneurs virtually or physically through venture development processes designed for prescribed outcomes, whether for social impact projects, corporate innovation challenges, or just an aspiring entrepreneur’s really big idea.

COventures technology and strategies allows anyone to participate in the innovation economy, actually adding revenue to host organizations like universities, incubators, accelerators, community co-working spaces, and corporate innovation centers, while remaining negligible- to no-cost for entrepreneurs to employ world class resources otherwise out of reach.


COventures was created because limited or simply obscured resources (human, intellectual, capital) will inhibit even the most promising ideas.

COventures technologies are able to accelerate even the smallest projects from “what if” to “when”, helping capture fleeting inspiration and fueling critical economic development.

COventures provides entrepreneurs, organizations and communities transformative technologies and economic development strategies that fuel sustainable innovation communities.


Startup Genius roadmaps lead innovators through proven processes turn-by-turn—like a GPS for venture development. Users are required to seek and employ real-time critique from mentors and advisors at each step, helping validate assumptions or encourage pivots before going too far down a wrong path.

Mentors, advisors, freelancers and consultants stock the Startup Genius Marketplace providing entrepreneurs with legal, accounting and other critical development assistance—seamlessly qualifying startups for pre-aligned follow-on development assistance and funding from the Crowd or any number of angels, grants or programs inside or outside of the Startup Genius Marketplace.
