I spent much of Global Entrepreneurship Week traveling. It’s one of the things I love most about my work at the Kauffman Foundation. And in that travel, I’ve learned that entrepreneurship transcends borders and languages—but it is deeply impacted by culture and policy.
Partnerships in innovation development phases can offer a wide range of benefits in the healthcare industry where experience can simplify complex processes.
Each day, Innovation Daily checks the pulse of global innovation--courtesy of Innovation America. Here, we take a look at a handful of relevant stories it compiled last week.
Early in his Administration, President Enrique Peña Nieto embarked on a serious mission to fuel entrepreneurial growth by challenging Mexico to better tap into its people’s creativity and boost productivity. On January 11, 2013—less than two months after he took office—he signed a decree that created the National Institute for Entrepreneurs (INADEM). Few governments have institutionalized their commitment to building an entrepreneurship ecosystem as highly as Mexico, which now has a decentralized administrative office of the Secretariat of Economy dedicated to entrepreneurs.
In last week’s This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy post, we talked about a couple pieces of legislation to make it easier to start and scale new firms that were getting a close up look and vote from the House Rules Committee. Both of them—the Innovation Act (H.R. 3309) and the Small Business Capital Access and Job Preservation Act (H.R. 1105)—passed the House last week and are now on their way to the Senate.

Can you guess where the follow startups were founded-- GameStop, Woot, Words with Friends, SOFTLAYER? Probably Silicon Valley, right? No. How about Boston? Wrong again. I'll give you a hint: it's the fourth largest media market in the country, home to 18 Fortune 500 companies and boasts two major airports, serving as headquarters for two major airlines. Sounds like a pretty good place to start a company, right? Dallas, and the surrounding area called the "Metroplex", sure thinks so and it wants you to start thinking so as well. On Tuesday, I had the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the emerging startup scene in Dallas. I was pleasantly surprised with what I found here.
