Karen Rands, the Compassionate Capitalist, has long admired the profound impact our university system is having on entrepreneurism in America. From the economy to terrorism, America faces difficult new challenges. In these times of uncertainty, the question is one of national evolution: can America adapt to the economic, demographic, technological and security challenges of the new century? First we will hear from Matt Harrison, the author of the thought provoking "The American Evolution: How America Can Adapt to the Political, Economic, and Social Challenges of the 21st Century". Many will argue that the burden for America's evolution is on the shoulders of the Y Generation...if so, how are we equipping them? One such way is through the entrepreneur programs offered in our Universities. During the show we will be joined by David Boneparth, the Asst. Director of Academics at the University of Florida's Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation. He'll discuss the surge in those programs across the American University system and specifically how UF is equipping our next generation of leaders. We'll wrap the show up with some insights from the Y Generation of Entrepreneurs.
