I hate to use this space to brag, but I’m so excited that I just had to put in here that the Falcone Center for Entrepreneurship’s South Side Innovation Center has been selected as one of the finalists in the National Business Incubator Association’s Incubator of the Year competition. The NBIA, which has over 1,900 members in 60 countries, annually selects just two incubators to honor; one in the High Tech arena and the other in the General/ Special Focus category. The SSIC has been selected as one of only two finalists in the General/Special Focus category. The winners will be announced at the NBIA annual conference in April.
On the non-bragging front, take a look at this article Seven Steps to Better Brainstorming by Kevin Coyne and Shawn Coyne. Thanks to our friends at McKinsey and Company for including it in their newsletter. As somebody who has been in countless, mindnumbing brainstorming sessions, the approach recommended by the author is clearly the right way to go.
