NEW entrepreneurship website- entrepreneurship.org

Kauffman Foundation has started a NEW entrepreneurship website.
http://entrepreneurship.org/
and resources center

Actually, innovation and entrepreneurship (in business, social, political and military areas) are the reasons what makes USA and UK different from others. India is different too in the recent times.
