National Entrepreneur Month

June is National Entrepreneur Month.  At Hyde Park Angels, we celebrate entrepreneurs from the Lemonade stand that a child sets up on the street to the next scalable business we will fund.  Entrepreneurs come in all shapes, sizes, colors and genders.  No one has the market cornered on a good idea.  

Do you wonder if you have what it takes to become an entrepreneur?  Well, here is a quiz for you to take to start to find out.  

There are many resources on the internet to support you should you decide to start your own business.  HPA would encourage you to visit sites like Built In Chicago, The Kauffman Foundation site, and the Angel Capital Association site to get some online information.  You could also call the Polsky Center at the University of Chicago, the Coleman CenterThe Knapp Center, the Farley Center at Northwestern, University of Illinois in Champaign,  UIC, or Gigot Center at Notre Dame. 

Go get ’em.  Be on fire each and every day and we can’t wait to see what you create.  Who knows, you might be the next Henry Ford, Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg?
