Our very own Sean Griffin is attending the Global Entrepreneurship Congress in Liverpool, England. Although he is “across the pond” he promised to post via twitter what he considered to be the most important thoughts and topics and would expand on them once he returned. Never ones to wait we thought we would share what he has shared so far. Of course you can see all the #GEC2012 tweets by clicking this link or see the real time tweets below.
Of all his tweets, this is the one which caught our eye (can’t wait to hear more),
Too many Public incubators breeding lazy entrepreneurs latest research has shown. #GEC2012
