Cardboard Bicycle

Against the advice of his engineer friends, Israeli inventor Izhar Gafni built a working bicycle out of cardboard. He's now ready to make some money out of his invention. A neat story of how somebody smart and persistent can create something compelling out of something we take for granted.

Check out his promo video:

The IdeaCorp Program

I've been working hard lately trying to strengthen the Entrepreneurship program at Loyola. A great opportunity promoted as part of the Idea Village's entrepreneurship week is the IdeaCorp program. During this program a team of 6 MBA's partner with a burgeoning start-up. These students, hailing from schools such as Columbia and Dartmouth, are thrown into a full-fledged consulting project and are expected to come up with solutions that entrepreneurs can implement in a week. They also get to meet and greet very successful business people, politicians and investors. I'm looking forward to advising Loyola students through this gauntlet. Go Team Loyola!
