“Lost Einsteins: The US may have missed out on millions of inventors”

Originally posted in our May 2024 Top of Mind Newsletter.

The article “Lost Einsteins” from MIT’s Sloan School reveals that the U.S. may have missed out on millions of potential inventors due to unequal access to resources and opportunities. By fostering a more inclusive environment and nurturing diverse talent, we can unlock untapped innovation while also enabling self-empowerment for those communities that have previously been ignored in the space of entrepreneurship and innovation.

This insight aligns perfectly with our mission at ELI: to promote entrepreneurial mindset education and ensure that everyone, regardless of their background, has the opportunity to innovate and succeed. Embracing diversity in entrepreneurial education can lead to groundbreaking ideas and progress and goes far beyond start-up creation.
