“If you don't know where you are going, you'll end up someplace else.” - Yogi Berra

Vibrant communities have a vision and goals. These are fundamental components to assist the community on a pathway to success. Successful entrepreneurial communities seek to make the process inclusive of all community members.

Communities with a vision are characterized by:

  • Having a strong sense of purpose and identity
  • Knowing who they are and who they want to be
  • Possessing a strong commitment to the future
  • Utilizing the community’s past as a springboard to the future, rather than being bound by it
  • Communicating in an open and inclusive manner
  • Creating opportunities for all community members
  • Supporting innovation, encouraging entrepreneurial thinking, and embracing new enterprises
  • Incorporating community sustainability into the vision
