Also, Kauffman Foundation Vice President of Advancing Innovation Lesa Mitchell testified to the House Committee on Science and Technology regarding the improvement of technology commercialization.

We also discussed a nationwide initiative to create a National Entrepreneur Day. Individuals from all over the country are making the pledge and signing the petition.

And lastly we looked at Yvon Chouinard, the innovative entrepreneur and owner of Patagonia Outdoor Clothing. Despite the struggling retail economy, Patagonia had its best two years ever.
