In this course, we will be looking at what my hometown of
Cleveland, Ohio did in order to grow entrepreneurship by pairing government and
philanthropic support with private investment. I will also be calling upon
entrepreneurs from selected markets around the world to hear their perspectives

I am looking forward to having you reflect on the support for entrepreneurs in
your community through discussion board posts and assignments and where there
might be opportunities to strengthen your local ecosystem based on what we are
learning in class. I know we will learn quite a bit from one another during our
We are working hard to get the course ready for launch on April 28 and
we will be updating our course blog (http://beyondsiliconvalley.wordpress.com/)
as we move toward launch with articles and ideas that you might want to think
about before class starts.
