Entrepreneurship | Thought Economics

In this exclusive interview series, we speak to Sir Richard Branson (Founder of Virgin Group) and Robin Li (Founder of Baidu). We discuss the fundamental nature of entrepreneurship, entrepreneurs themselves, and the role of entrepreneurs in society and the economy. We look at the key sources of entrepreneurial ideas, characteristics of successful enterprise and the role of wealth in the entrepreneurial journey. We also look at how entrepreneurship has changed, what the future holds and how entrepreneurs are addressing some of the world's most pressing problems from poverty and economic crises to climate change and health.

This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy: The 2015 Economic Report of the President | Kauffman.org

This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy: The 2015 Economic Report of the President | Kauffman.org | n2euro | Scoop.it
Most eyes on Capitol Hill this week are focused on the appearance of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the funding the Department of Homeland Security – for longer than the current one-week stopgap agreed to last week. However, there are a number of hearings of interest to followers of the entrepreneurial economy.  Jason Furman, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors, presents The Economic Report of the President before the Joint Economic Committee on Wednesday. And after all the noise last week about net neutrality, the FCC’s FY 2016 budget is the topic of conversation for the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. Meanwhile, Congressman Chabot and the House Small Business Committee explore the “State of Small Business and Entrepreneurship” and ways to improve capital access programs of the SBA.
