Entrepreneurs create services and inventions and products we didn’t know we needed. They create knowledge and efficiencies and competition. Most important, they create jobs. Entrepreneurs surveyed from the Americas grew their headcount in 2011 by an impressive 18%. In Asia-Pacific and Europe the increases were 16% and 12% respectively.
StARTing a business is not something to be done lightly, but we can investigate our idea and resilience in a forum like START-UP WEEKEND. Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable.
And we all can contribute to the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Supporting dedicated entrepreneurs is stARTistry of the most important kind.
