ENT@SLU: Entrepreneurship at SLU

eWeb started as eGopher (really old tech) in 1995, moved to a website, and on and off campus over the years. The goal has always been the same, a place to share my findings and thoughts about entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurship educators with the rest of the world. If you find something useful, great. If you find something needs to be fixed or changed, let me know at jerome.katz@slu.edu.
