5. Conclusions

Based on the practice of mass entrepreneurship and innovation service work in Yanjiang Street, this paper summarizes the experiences of the “DingMeng Model”, and the work enlightenment is as follows:

Rome was not built in a day. Innovation and entrepreneurship need to have a solid backing foundation in order to go far. Therefore, based on the favorable policy background of mass entrepreneurship and innovation service, the government should actively introduce social capital, cooperate with enterprises. At the same time, in view of the service demand of entrepreneurial enterprises, the government should build a healthy “entrepreneurial ecosystem” from various angles, and help enterprises become stronger and bigger.

The deficiency of this paper is that, under the mass entrepreneurship and innovation service mode of government-enterprise cooperation, the problem of how to better help enterprises to carry out innovation and entrepreneurship has not yet been analyzed. Therefore, in order to improve the value of the study, the following work will be focused on these issues:

Firstly, we will carry out special research on the needs of start-up enterprises, help them to solve the problems and improve the success rate of the business.

Secondly, under the mass entrepreneurship and innovation service mode of government-enterprise cooperation, we will analyze the division of labor and performance evaluation between government and social capital in detail.

Thirdly, we will comb the construction elements of the entrepreneurial ecological environment of small and medium-sized micro-enterprises, create the virtuous circle of innovation and entrepreneurship, and the mass entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem of sustainable development.
