As firms and communities adapt to current pandemic conditions, many entrepreneurs and creative/knowledge workers continue to work from home. While some predict this will spell a long term shift to working from home and a reorganization of businesses more generally, what are the implications for the role of entrepreneurial ecosystems in supporting innovation?
