Yes Minister Entrepreneurship
Issue no. 416
Yes, Minister. Entrepreneurship.
The spirit of entrepreneurship was alive and well at last week's Presidential Summit on Entrepreneurship. The White House took a political risk in hosting a summit on "global" entrepreneurship in a climate when so many Americans, anxious about their local economy, are easily blinded to the vital role entrepreneurs play in building the stable economies overseas essential to our growing firms back home. The summit though was a foreign policy success and a solid statement of support for the role all entrepreneurs play in creating jobs and economic growth.
