As a member of the National Women's Business Council, I've had the opportunity to engage with hundreds of female entrepreneurs. During our talks, I couldn't help but happen upon an interesting, yet frustrating discovery. 9 out of every 10 women I spoke with would rather stall their growth than ask for capital.
I have long read about capital. I have read it as a philosophical problem, as a mind-broadening concept, and as a powerful geo-political force. If we are to train a generation of students to make decisions that shape the world in an effective manner, we must help one another understand the principal forces that shape the world around us.
