DinarStandard has been highlighting and covering entrepreneurship and innovation trends across the Muslim markets for the past many years.  We have hardly come across any event that has effectively discussed entrepreneurship for this market in the manner that President Obama’s Summit on Entrepreneurship did earlier this year, April 26-27th in Washington DC.  This event put into action the promise President Obama made during his speech to the Muslim world in Cairo on June 4th, 2009.  I was invited to cover the event and here are some of my observations regarding the diverse mix of delegates, key messages, ... market research, surveys and trends

The informal venture capital market comprises individuals who provide risk capital directly to new and growing businesses with which they had no previous relationship.  9 In the US, this market has been identified as the single most important source of risk capital for SMEs . Data for the importance of the informal market in the Canadian context are scarce; however, four studies suggest that the informal market in Canada is at least as important as the institutional venture capital market.

The Sobering Reality of Entrepreneurship in the US
Many of us harbor a somewhat romantic idea of being an entrepreneur. Yes, you work hard and possibly around the clock, but the gratification of being your own boss is something few people get at their 9-to-5 jobs. And, of course, if your business makes it big, you could rake in the millions, retire early, become an angel investor… or pursue any other of your life’s dreams. Right?  Not necessarily. There are many common misconceptions to what we believe an entrepreneur’s life is like, how they come to be, or even where the United States stands in the world of entrepreneurship. In his book, The Illusions of Entrepreneurship , ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

In this respect Finnish business angels are somewhat older than those identified in the USA and the UK, but similar in age to Swedish business angels (Landstr�m, 1993) which no doubt reflects the higher tax rates in Nordic countries, meaning that it takes longer to achieve a high net worth. Finnish business angels are also well educated: 56% have a Masters ...
