The 2009 Recession Will Produce the Largest Wave of Entrepreneurship

This isn’t a recession, it’s a Revolution!

I am proud to say that my generation; Generation X has been the largest entrepreneurial generation ever. That’s all about to change.  In preparing for my IgniteBoise presentation my friend Steve Nipper sent this great NYT article over to me:

Tired of Looking for Work, Some Create Their Own - NYTimes.com

“If there is a silver lining, the large-scale downsizing from major companies will release a lot of new entrepreneurial talent and ideas — scientists, engineers, business folks now looking to do other things,” Mr. Cannice said. “It’s a Darwinian unleashing of talent into the entrepreneurial ecosystem.”

The tidal wave of workforce being unleashed on the open market consist of just as many, if not more, Baby Boomers as Gen Xers and as Generation Y walks out of college they are also being hit with the stark reality that there are no jobs.

I predict that the rising force of new businesses will be the most disruptive movement to date.
