The Chancellor’s State of the University Address this morning made several mentions of entrepreneurship and the University’s involvement in regional affairs. We’ve taken notice of the increased focus on local economic development and you’ll find quite a few books dealing with small business and innovation when browsing the New Book Island. Here’s a few:
