Not all entrepreneurs are created, or create, equal(ly)

Maria Meyers of U.S.SourceLink offers a nice perspective on the different types of entrepreneurs in any given community and the different community resources they need to succeed.

Meyers identifies four types:

There are three really nice points in this perspective.

First, it respects the different origins and aspirations of all four types — and respects them equally for their challenges, commitment, and contributions to the community.

Second, it recognizes the fourth type — the "second-stager" — because many big businesses were once small businesses running along fine for years before become "high-growth." Contrast this to the dominant view that only small businesses with overblown aspirations will ever become big businesses.

Finally, it recognizes the challenge is not re-inventing the means to support these entrepreneurs so much as bringing these existing means together effectively.
