Promoting Entrepreneurship

The Economist has a write up on Carl Schramm at the Kauffman Foundation, which exists to encourage entrepreneurship.

I have read a number of books, and participated in programs, that came out of the Kauffman Foundation, and I applaud what they are doing. I have also thought that it is really difficult to have a foundation effectively promote something like entrepreneurship, which is so often a very personally motivated behavior. This article is an interesting look at what Kauffman is doing, and the challenges Schramm faces in leading it.

It also provides a link to the cool Hot Shot Business site, where kids can play business in an impressive simulator. My candy shop has already been smoked by the competition....
