Entrepreneurship News Roundup: Week of 6/25/2010
Thom Ruhe, Director of Entrepreneurship, The Kauffman Foundation
This week Gary Schoeniger’s, Founder and CEO of the Entrepreneurial Learning Initiative, (ELI), reviewed how entrepreneurs are more like insurgents rather than predators. We also looked at, how entrepreneurs like The Denver Cupcake Truck and Solotrekkers are using social media to build awareness of their business and efforts.
Embracing new innovation and emerging technology was also the focus this week as we reviewed PepsiCo’s PepsiCo10 project. Based on this project, PepsiCo will select up to 10 aspiring entrepreneurial groups, match them with industry mentors to launch a new program. This not only opens the door for entrepreneurs, it also helps level the playing field. And that is a win/win for all of us.
As we can see the entrepreneurial momentum is shifting. And with that being said we have been working behind the scenes to meet this change with a new entrepreneurship.org, which will be launching soon.
