The frustrations evident in the 2016 presidential campaign season were largely fueled by an economy that is leaving too many Americans without employment or sufficient income. And the election was sadly short on real solutions. So what can we do about that?
The only way to address those frustrations on a large enough scale is through an approach that can literally reach every community in the nation. Fortunately, a grassroots movement is sweeping the country that can do just that — transform how Americans grow our local economies through building robust entrepreneurial ecosystems. With Global Entrepreneurship Week approaching, I'm embarking on a four-state Midwest road tour Friday to better understand the opportunities and potential.
