    Dear All, as is well-known, there is a dearth of good resources about female entrepreneurs for use in classroom and lectures. To address this issue, Jasmine Kelley has put together a free e-book that profiles many women entrepreneurs from around the world. You can download the e-book for free here (https://alabama.box.com/s/4e2j8qixwa7mcg9kdedy3xxssy4udfj2). I hope you will find the book helpful. Your comments and suggestions for improvement are most welcome.

    Thanks,

    Vishal

    Dear Colleagues,

    Thank you Vishal for providing the link to the free ebook, and discussing the dearth of good resources for women entrepreneurs.    

    Last year, McMurry and the Gaia Storytelling Lab hosted a virtual women's entrepreneurship event where we recorded 17 inspirational interviews with local and international women entrepreneurs.  The interviewees are from a variety of industries and we have interviews in English, Spanish, French, and German. 

    I have asked my students to use these interviews as the basis for explaining a variety of tools and concepts in my entrepreneurship courses.  

    The interviews are in the link below:


    Feel free to use these interviews in any way you wish.  

    Best,

    Duncan
