Entrepreneurs play a vital role in the success of business and technological innovations, but some impediments do limit their full potential. Dr. Timothy Folta explains how we can redefine the term "entrepreneurship" to overcome those hurdles and attract the best and brightest individuals to become entrepreneurs and ensure a brighter future for all of us.
Dr. Folta is Associate Professor of Management at Purdue University's Krannert Graduate School of Management. His research focuses on firm entry and exit, with a particular emphasis on entrepreneurial ventures, especially in the medical device and biotechnology industries. Dr. Folta is also Director of BIOMEDSHIP, a program designed to study and provide leadership in biomedical entrepreneurship and innovation.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
