Blog for Purposeful Founders: Possibilities not Problems
Blog for Purposeful Founders: the Blog for Purposeful Founders is focused on venture creation and entrepreneurship. It aims to provide interest, knowledge and guidance to aspiring entrepreneurs, especially to those seeking to create a new venture with a bold sense of purpose.
I am an entrepreneur myself, taught new venture creation on an MBA program and for many years have been mentor to people starting businesses and nonprofits on three continents. I have been a board member of a regional venture capital company in France, and on the boards of nonprofits in the US, France and the UK. I have served as a government adviser in the UK and had a corporate career for a dozen years (including time as an intrapreneur).
Be sure to keep returning to the Blog for Purposeful Founders for help, advice, directories and tools—to give your startup a promising lift off, or your early-stage venture real advantages to flourish. I post irregularly, but often. My whole aim is support your endeavors to change the world for the benefit of all.
The whole website is a compendium of support for the enterprising founder who is breaking new ground. As well as information and advice on how to create and manage a different kind of enterprise, there is a huge amount of very practical material on all the essential functions of any startup: strategy, finance, marketing & sales, employment and human relations.
