Blog for the Next Generation Entrepreneur

by | May 14, 2007 | Observations

I’m a frequent reader of David Maister’s blog, Passion, People and Principles. A couple of weeks ago he pointed readers to an interesting blog, The Brazen Careerist.

It’s a very interesting blog targeted at Generation X and the Next Generation. There are many great posts and a lot of great advice for young professionals.

One section of the blog I particularly noted and liked was dedicated to entrepreneurship. Generation X and the Next Generation are both huge entrepreneurial generations. Just look at the .com boom and the success of university sponsored business competitions. 

For example, the Rice Business Plan Competition (RBPC) is one of the largest in the world, awarding over $120K in cash and $200K total. The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in young people across the globe. I wish the mainstream media would publicize and feature competitions like the RBPC more often. 

The fact that the RBPC is such a large and successful competition and draws participants from all over the globe is a testament to the entrepreneurial spirit of this generation. In this vein, I read an interesting article about entrepreneurship across the generations. Look for my comments on it on Wednesday.
