Last year I was honored to be asked to speak about entrepreneurship at Rice’s “Unconvention” in celebration of its centennial year. Instead of talking about lean startup, customer development, fundraising, or many of the other very well covered topics out there, I chose to focus on a framework for entrepreneurship that is, well, unconventional.
My talk, entitled “The Entrepreneur’s Journey,” proposes entrepreneurship lessons embedded in our most popular myths, legends, stories, and fairy tales. Finally this weekend, as a birthday gift to myself, I crossed “Publish my TEDx talk” off my to-do list.
Take a look at the video and the powerpoint slides (synced with audio) and tell me what you think! And please like and share both links – after all, we need more Yoda references in our global discussion of entrepreneurship!
