Entrepreneurship by Necessity

 

Tragedy to Entrepreneur of the year

I had the great fortune to study entrepreneurship in a seminar led by Gerry Hills at UIC. Gerry has widespread interests: entrepreneurial marketing, opportunity recognition, and who became entrepreneurs. I remember being interested with studies that showed that e-ship was often semi-voluntary. Many people become entrepreneurs after they lose their jobs, go to jail and acquire criminal records,  emigrate or suffer some other setback that makes “normal” employment difficult: entrepreneurship by necessity.

For an inspiring twist on this phenomenon, read about Inc’s Entrepreneur of the year:
