UM: Business

Writing in The Atlantic, Alexis Madrigal describes his experience hanging out at TechArb, a “start-up accelerator” for University of Michigan students: ”What I couldn’t help thinking, while talking to these brilliant students, was how deeply start-up culture has penetrated general culture. The idea that building a business is something exciting and rewarding rather than a way to pay the bills is startling. ‘You ever been to a U of M football game?’ [Shiva] Kilaru asks me. ‘That’s the energy we bring to entrepreneurship.’” [Source]
