Blog Resource
Summary:

Today I am headed to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for a government-convened gathering of entrepreneurs and their supporters focused on advancing entrepreneurship in Muslim-majority countries.

Blog Resource
Summary:

Last week, we talked about Babson College's 17 year string of domination over the U.S. News & World Report's rankings for entrepreneurship education in U.S. colleges and universities.

For “small businesses”, the effects are quite clear, mostly relating to government contracts (more than half the federal spending would go through federal contracts before the shutdown) and Small Business Administration (SBA) loans.
