Mitt Romney: Returning entrepreneurship to America is a start.

Returning entrepreneurship to America is a vision I can get with. Entrepreneurship is a word that has been bantered about without the passion of a person who understands business. America’s evolving economy calls for a renewed emphasis on entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship needs to be more than the word that conjures up a small office sitting in the back of a business school on a university’s campus. Given the state of the economy, where fewer jobs are available, citizens have to learn how to leverage their skills either into a primary source of income or to generate part-time income in order to make up for lost income.

Question is, will Mr. Romney simply relegate the concept to a talking point or will he build on it, explain it, and sell it. Can he close the deal?

One Response to Mitt Romney: Returning entrepreneurship to America is a start.

  1. John Torinus says:

    Unlike subsidized businesses and industries, most entrepreneurial adventures cost the taxpayer and government little. FaceBook is going public for $5 billion and cost the taxpayers nothing. States are creating matching funds for early stage ventures. Makes sense, since private money goes into the deals first. Government isn’t picking winners and losers.

    Important to note; Romney’s Bain Capital did only a little of what would be called venture capital. Mainly it did buy-ous. Not much value add in buyouts. Huge value-add in terms of jobs, wealth creation and innovations from venture capital . The distinction is all important.
