NBA Owner Announces Plans for Entrepreneurship "Boot Camp"

Posted 15 years ago by Adam Gautsch

In an effort to boost Detroit's local economy and foster start-up skills among the city's younger residents, Dan Gilbert, a veteran entrepreneur and NBA team owner, has announced plans to open an entrepreneurship academy. I like this idea in many ways. It is just hard for me to get my mind around going to school for entrepreneurship. I doesn't seem like a school endeavor to me.

Part of the reason I never understood the Spiro center. Truly good ideas don't need academia. Sorry, but I feel that's the cold hard truth. Maybe these things can be fostered or improved once they develop, but most innovation comes from individuals executing alone until they can get seed money and then going big time.
