A2: Entre-SLAM

Writing for Fortune magazine, Vickie Elmer describes the genesis of Entre-SLAM, a monthly Ann Arbor-based storytelling competition for entrepreneurs that was founded last year by Jeannie Ballew and Christa Chambers-Price. Ballew is quoted on plans for expanding the concept: ”The stories that evolve from these gatherings are meant to be told again and again. We envision building a thriving, online community of entrepreneurs but also we plan on releasing a series of books….I keep visualizing Entre-Slam in Japan. We have every reason to believe it can be international.” [Source]
