WISE2006: Why They Are Heroes

Michael Morris spoke on entrepreneurship. Dr. Morris is the Witting Chair in Entrepreneurship at Syracuse University

Entrepreneurship is the key to our economy. Our economy is based on nothing else but entrepreneurship – the ability to be faster, more aggressive, and more innovative. We are in the midst of a entrepreneurial revolution. It is the way we think and act.

Entrepreneurs are everywhere and women are helping to lead the way. Entrepreneurs exist in every industry, every business area, and in not-for-profit and for-profit businesses. They work in businesses and work for themselves.

Entrepreneurs take responsibility for change. They are quiet revolutionaries. Entrepreneurs celebrate the magic of “what if.”

Paraphrasing Gandhi, we should be the change we want to see in the world.

Nataly Kogan -- Managing Director, Hudson Venture Partners -- is a venture capitalist (and author) and also spoke on entrepreneurship. She said it was good to be in the presence of so many creative, gutsy, passionate and strong women. She spoke about a woman who during a time of adversity, started a business, which is now a multi-million dollar business.

Kogan said that whatever business who choose to create, make sure that it is something that fires you up inside. Make sure that you are passionate about it, so that you will get through the tough times.

The daring female manifesto: “To get the most out of your life, you must dare yourself to do it.”
