Blog Resource
Summary:

Mark Marich
10/7/2013
Blog Resource
Summary:

Look around and you will find a number of articles on the effects of the political stalemate / government shutdown on entrepreneurs. For “small businesses”, the effects are quite clear, mostly relating to government contracts (more than half the federal spending would go through federal contracts before the shutdown) and Small Business Administration (SBA) loans. In addition, with 62% of the SBA’s staff furloughed, all counseling is on hold until the government is back up and running. The suspension of these contracts, loans and services represents an immediate “brake” on the economy.

Summary:

One week after the government shutdown began, the finger-pointing continues while a new deadline looms even larger—10 more days until a potential U.S. government default. While many are still calling it "extremely unlikely" there seems to be consensus in that it would be "a catastrophe." Meanwhile, many of the Congressional hearings were cancelled or postponed last week and the handful scheduled for this week look to be more focused on the blame game than anything else. Like last week, the following hearings may be postponed—so be sure to check the committee websites for last-minute updates.

Old Hands and New Starts in Britain
Jonathan Ortmans
9/30/2013
Blog Resource
Summary:

Being born in Britain might explain my bias, but I find myself asking again whether we have overlooked the important leadership role of royalty in providing help from the top for bottom-up startup communities. I recently spoke with the Prince of Wales at St. James Palace in London and while he is from a different generation, I heard a man with his heart and mind fully in step with today’s unemployed youth and the path they must beat to create their own future as entrepreneurs.
