Great Video Discussion on Educating Entrepreneurs

Really good video where entrepreneurs discuss how we can develop the next generation of entrepreneurs. Really nice to hear the thoughts of Leonard Brody, Mark Ecko, Don Moody, and John Petry— each succesful in the new venture space and each has been active in education reform in the U.S. (click image to view panel discussion)

The panel is moderated by Ira Sokowitz and was part of last year’s Global  Entrepreneurship Week. All were great and I especially liked Ecko’s discussion of finding and creating a narrative. In our class, New Venture Creation, we often discuss the the need for entrepreneurs, in writing a plan and pitching, to paint a picture of the future and engage the audience while doing it. The future must be compelling to both the entrepreneur, their market, and their potential financiers.

Hope you enjoy. Please feel free to share your thoughts. And let me know how you think education as to change to prepare potential entrepreneurs.
