    The Entrepreneur & Innovation Exchange, or EIX, is a free online resource designed to make research-based insights available and relevant to entrepreneurs and those who work with them. As 2020 gets underway, consider using EIX articles and videos in your courses to shed light on a range of entrepreneurship topics, including testing ideas, building teams, assembling resources, managing operations, and growing strategically. For example, check out Sofia Bapna's recent piece on how young companies can build online communities. Or this classic piece by Howard Aldrich on removing barriers to entrepreneurship.

    Also, consider sharing your own content on the EIX platform. Do you have a research article with practical implications? We can help you craft a short translation that can ultimately reach thousands of entrepreneurs, educators, and enablers. Reach out and share your ideas for new content by emailing Senior Editor Dan Forbes. Ideas for content specific to family business can be shared with Kim Eddleston, Editor in Chief for our offshoot site FamilyBusiness.org.

    EIX is a nonprofit initiative supported by the charitable foundation of Best Buy Co. founder Richard Schulze, who launched the firm in 1966 and led it to become one of the world's leading retailers.
