I shared why I wrote the new book- to help entrepreneurs create successful companies, moving beyond basic “start your own your business” guidelines to reach the critical five year survival milestone.
I also shared some key points, such as why clearly defining your business model and strategy up-front, is critical, and discussed what readers are saying.
I emphasized that statistics show entrepreneurs are a major force to spur job creation, and economic growth. New policies/programs to directly help entrepreneurs; proposed new university programs to more tightly link to the business community and leverage university assets and IP; and national entrepreneurship initiatives are my vision that I shared during the interview
I will be expanding on these points in upcoming interviews and presentations. Stay tuned…comments always welcomed.
