The Entrepreneurial Imperative
What is the secret behind America’s economic success? Could it be our technology or our citizens’ level of education? No, says Carl Schramm, president of the Kauffman Foundation, the secret lies in our spirit of entrepreneurship. In The Entrepreneurial Imperative (Harper Collins, 2006), Mr. Schramm examines the history of innovation in the United States, as well as the current state of corporations, the government, universities, and start-up firms. He concludes that in order to maintain its economic superstar status, the United States must increase its support of entrepreneurial activities in all aspects of society.
Is entrepreneurship really the key to America’s economic success? What does the future hold for our businesses? What does the everyday citizen need to know about our changing economy? Please join us as author Carl Schramm and a panel of economic experts discuss the future of innovation in America and around the globe.
