Because it takes a village

“Create More Value Than You Capture”, “Angels in America: A Look at Angel Investment Growth Across the U.S.”, and “Marc Ecko on Entrepreneurship as an Art Form”

Hi everyone. This week I have included some interesting videos that I enjoyed watching and a great infographic that makes me optimistic about getting funding from investors. If you did not get a chance to attend The Entrepreneur Society’s first official meeting, that is okay. You can come to one of our other weekly meetings or drop by during office hours. Check out the website www.ssutrepsociety.com. Have a great week.

Entrepreneurs are often thought of as risk-takers, business owners, innovators, and many other things. Marc Ecko, founder of Ecko Unltd, believes that all Entrepreneurs are artists.

Like artists, entrepreneurs need to focus on the emotional impact of their overall purpose.
