5 Best Blogs and Resources for Entrepreneurship Education

These are the 5 best entrepreneurship education websites.

There are many resources on the web about entrepreneurship education.  In most cases, entrepreneurship is from the School of Hard Knocks, but these blogs will help you on your way.

A recent article on Bloomberg Business poses the question that many entrepreneurship education programs get it wrong.  They suggest that the education portion is mostly success stories, rather than an education on the hard grind that it will take to actually make it.  A widely cited number is that 90% of companies do not even make it to their 5th year.  The Bloomberg article is here: http://www.bloomberg.com/bw/articles/2013-08-08/entrepreneurship-education-is-hot-dot-but-too-many-get-it-wrong

Number 1: “Statistical Correlation Between Patent Ownership and Success”

BlueIron IP’s blog about patents.

France Brevets, a French sovereign investment fund, has published a report (in English) that correlates success of venture-backed startups with the patents held by the startup.

As you would think the chances of success by the company increases when the company has a patent, but I was astounded to learn that biotech or software companies have almost a three times greater chance of success when there is at least one patent.
