“While the news is full of stories of business geniuses and technology gurus who build multimillion-dollar companies seemingly overnight, being an entrepreneur is a journey.  Do you see a problem and have an idea for an innovative solution?  Be it in the realm of the arts, education, engineering, health care, and beyond, your desire to create change makes you an entrepreneur” – Startup Weekend: How to Take a Company From Concept to Creation in 54 Hours
