Encouraging Entrepreneurship

Hi everyone,

Welcome to our inaugural Entrepreneurship Week at Duke University! I hope this will be the first of many Entrepreneurship Weeks.

The idea for Entrepreneurship Week came in August, when I was thinking about putting together a Conference at Duke on Entrepreneurship. I was looking at Stanford's entrepreneurial offerings and happened upon their Entrepreneurship Week website, http://eweek.stanford.edu. It turns out that the Kauffman Foundation, which is the non-profit that encourages entrepreneurship everywhere, had held a big "EntrepreneurshipWeek USA" event in early 2007.

I immediately knew this was the event I wanted to take on, and with Jon Fjeld, Barry Myers, Larry Boyd, Kimberly Jenkins, Jeff Clark, Bob Taber, Matt Nash, Chris Gergen, Rose Ritts, Kaycee Shoemaker, Jeremy Welch, Kathy Beckett, Tiffany Hogan, Kirsten Nicholas and many others, we began the process of putting together Entrepreneurship Week at Duke University!

We are officially one month away from the beginning of the Week (it starts on December 3rd, 2007). We've got most of the major pieces in place and it's going to be a great week!

I hope you will join us. It is a "New Day" for Entrepreneurship at Duke!

  1. As we as a whole realize that there square measure a few essential needs of a private like nourishment, water, air, protect and this explore here so on anyway as of now there's another fundamental need which is instruction. Instruction has turned into the principal need of a private.

  2. Entrepreneurship that is a broader term that requires a lot of experience to be expert in it. The entrepreneurship week helps us a lot in getting the information from the experienced entrepreneurs and here you can writing custom paper for all students. So try to take part in these activities to groom yourself and to learn the new things from the experts to be successful in life.
