David Ponraj, a serial entrepreneur who moved from India to the U.S. to pursue a business career, has first-hand knowledge of the uphill battle small businesses face. His company, Economic Impact Catalyst, which helps municipalities work with small businesses, is in the process of expanding.
Economic Impact Catalyst is an entrepreneurship ecosystem software platform that provides the tools and resources needed to support small businesses. The company, previously known as Startup Space, rebranded in 2021 to Economic Impact Catalyst (EIC) as the scope of services grew beyond the Startup Space technology platform.
“We’ve gone from being a pure tech platform to becoming true advisors,” Ponraj said during a Wednesday ribbon-cutting celebration for the new Clearwater HQ at 28050 U.S. Highway 19 N.
