Entrepreneurship for Everyone

Last month, I spoke at the Fall Gala of the Roanoke-Blacksburg (VA) Technology Council (RBTC).   I was asked to join the RBTC thanks to some past EntreWorks Consulting work on an effort that ultimately became the Roanoke-Blacksburg Innovation Blueprint, a regional road map for the innovation economy.   This effort has been a huge success, generating lots of accolades for the region and its industry leadership.  My remarks focused on where to go next, and I focused a great deal on how to create a more equitable innovation economy that engages all residents in the region–not just the techies.  An op-ed version of my remarks recently appeared in The Roanoke Times, and  I’m hopeful that I can soon return to see more great things happening in the area.
