After more than five years and thousands of doughnuts, Netpreneur's very last Coffee & DoughNets is coming Wednesday, December 11. It's the end of an era, but just the start of a new chapter of the story of entrepreneurship in our region. As Mario Morino declared just two C&Ds ago, "It is a great time to start a business," we'll pick up that theme next week with Mario and a panel of entrepreneurs-in-action discussing how they're keeping their dreams alive and growing. Why is it a good time for entrepreneurs? As Mario said, "You're back to being real entrepreneurs, and all the foolishness of the last six years is gone." On top of that, markets seem to be stabilizing, businesses are buying again, rents are cheaper, salaries are lower. We'll take this time to look at both the past and future of entrepreneurship in our region and learn why times matter less for entrepreneurs than vision, energy, and execution.
