The Future of the Future: Incubating the next-generation enterprise
Small business is a key component in any economy, whether mature or developing. Just look at the success of the micro-loan concept. In fact, given today’s problems, we need small business innovation more than ever. But hanging out a shingle doesn’t cut it anymore. Nor does just putting up a Web site. We’ve got to create an infrastructure that allows the rapid flow of specialized knowledge in a way that new ideas can be moved into the marketplace, quickly and easily. And we can’t allow barriers such as physical proximity, or increasing regulatory burdens, to slow down the process.
Law professor Fred Provorny understands this new paradigm. He and his team recently launched the Center for New Technology Enterprise. Passionately shunning bricks-and-mortar, they conduct all of their activities in a virtual environment, keeping costs to a minimum. Drawing from their growing network of graduate students and subject matter experts, they’ve got many parts of the value chain covered. Technology startups anywhere can take advantage of their collective experience and know-how.
