This week on Top of Mind, we are going to take a look at a brand new channel on called ID8 Nation. This channel will be showcasing different entrepreneurial ecosystems across the nation. We are kicking it off with Pittsburgh, illustrating how this traditional steel city is changing its image with a burgeoning entrepreneurial community. We will also talk to Dane Stangler, director of Research and Policy at the Kauffman Foundation, about the importance, for an entrepreneur, of knowing the support system in your community, and research Kauffman has done to discover the thriving geographical areas for entrepreneurship.
