Focuses on Regional Entrepreneurship
Camp, academic director of the Center for Entrepreneurship, recently
conducted a study for the Office of Advocacy of the U.S. Small Business
Administration and the Edward Lowe Foundation. The study, The Innovation-Entrepreneurship
NEXUS, was written by Camp's consulting firm Advanced Research
Technologies and demonstrates that innovation without entrepreneurship
generally yields minimal economic impact. It also developed the Regional
Entrepreneurship Index that assesses the dynamic nature of entrepreneurship
within regions. Regions that score high on this index are most active
in creating and supporting new firms as well as building a strong
base of support for entrepreneurs. Glenwood Springs, Colo., was noted
as the nation's most entrepreneurial region. For more information,
