How Financial Advisors Connect With Entrepreneurs

Posted by Chris Holman on Nov 14, 2012 11:44:00 AM


As part of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), ClientWise is paying special attention this week to the role that financial advisors play in this space…as entrepreneurs themselves, and as consultants and advisors to other entrepreneurs. We feel that the connection between entrepreneuralism and financial advisors is a close one, and embrace the opportunity to increase that bond.

GEW is the creation of the Kauffman Foundation, the world’s largest foundation devoted to entrepreneurship. Among other things, the Kauffman Foundation is a terrific source of information for entrepreneurs.

Today, we wanted to spotlight a great resource for entrepreneurs, and stakeholders in this space. It is called the Kauffman Sketchbook, which features a number of entertaining and informative "sketchbook" videos. With these videos, the Kauffman Foundation aims to demystify the phenomenon of entrepreneurship and bring to light messages about the important role entrepreneurs play in innovation, job creation and economic growth.

Here’s a summary of some of the more interesting and thought-provoking videos:

Entrepreneurship is a mindset that takes hold and informs the entrepreneur. By listening to the videos above, and connecting to the authors via Twitter, you’ll begin to immerse yourself in the psyche of the entrepreneur.
