Invisible Capital: How Unseen Forces Shape Entrepreneurial Opportunity
Chris Rabb , author of Invisible Capital: How Unseen Forces Shape Entrepreneurial Opportunity, is the guest on the first segment of KAZI Book Review, Sunday, December 5, 12:30 p.m. – 12:45 p.m. on KAZI 88.7 FM. Listen live online at kazifm.org.
Invisible capital is not any one thing. It’s a complex set of factors: our skills, knowledge, networks, resources, and experiences. These can create significant advantages, even if they are not consciously exploited. Rabb details how people can evaluate the components of their own invisible capital and develop a plan to build on strengths and mitigate weaknesses. He draws on his extensive experience as an entrepreneur, his tenure on Capitol Hill and the White House Conference on Small Business, his experience managing an urban business incubator, and his involvement with numerous family-owned businesses.
