Concepts for a Personal (pre-)Incubator
- Establish life-long customer base for infrastructure services including Entrepreneurial
Consultancy, Continuing Education and Logistical Support, all to be
Sociometry as well as to the proposed
- The lone entrepreneur, abandoned to their own devices, is bereft of
all manner of support as routinely facilitated by corporate division of
labor. As the saying goes: Don't do, delegate! But this may be easier
said than done. The answer may be in a concept sometimes called: The
inverited corporation. In order to free the small business owner or even
lifestyle entrepreneur, to concentrate upon the specialized skill sets and
interests unique to their business concept. there is a tremendous market
potential for all manner of services to small business, including:
Accountancy, managerial consultancy, sales, promotion and more.
- The gap, the underserved needs herein addressed, begin
with formal education, conventional schooling.
Specialized Top Quality
Distribution Requirement Courses
- The problem/gap:
- As a rule, Collegiate Distribution Requirement curriculum is mediocre and
of poor quality, and the text books abysmal and exorbitant. But the hapless
students are stuck with it for the first two years of Under Graduate
studies. It's a Monopolistic racket!
- The solution:
- The damage can be minimized by warning and advising students to enroll in
small and obscure Colleges and Universities that actually offer academic
excellence and quality teaching, for the first two years of undergraduate
studies, and transferring to more prestigious or specialized institutions
only as Juniors.
- The opportunity:
- To design and to promote a specialized painless and first rate
Collegiate Distribution Requirement curriculum offering few or no electives,
electronic syllabus inclusive with registration. Plus
- By product:
- Wider publication and marketing of the electronic syllabus.
General Marketing to student body.
Expose students to other unique quality programs, and they may even stay.
The Study Advantage Curriculum
- The concept is of accelerated quality remedial education, for the
rest of us, and with no stigma attached!
The concept of the proposed Study Advantage Curriculum is to integrate,
as very much applicable, the following, into the other programs
Stenography (consisting of functional literacy including,
concurrently, keyboard and filing as well as Composition, Grammar,
Linguistics and Logic), Library Science (meaning research skills,
Online and Offline) and Accounting, (with an emphasis upon
spreadsheets and Statistics to tabulate supporting data and make
The course work for the proposed Study Advantage Curriculum is to consist
of whatever papers and presentations that are to have all already been
assigned to the student in whichever other program that the proposed Study
Advantage Curriculum is to supplement, with little or no additional work
load. Because such is exactly the kind of attention that can help a
mediocre student excel thereafter.
- Throughout, students, learning at their own pace, are to help one
another review, test and retest on all crucial tangible skill sets
acquired, until they are each and all down pat and proficient for every student. The
Study Advantage Curriculum is to actually integrate and foster study/user
groups, rather than leaving such crucial adjunct to maximizing education
to individual student discipline, popularity and chance.
The proposed Study Advantage Curriculum would be well suited both for
creative people to gain pertinent technical proficiencies, and for
technically oriented people to improve lucid communication. Indeed, most
anyone that is strong in one part of such skill sets, often turns out to
be weak in the others.
- Moreover, given the ongoing decline of High Schools, the proposed
Study Advantage Curriculum as conceived, is to also target the market for both open and
acknowledged and covert purveyance of what has emerged to become for all intents and purposes: "3 R's" remedial education, but catering
to the well established market preference of full course credits towards
graduation and unblemished academic records. Indeed, a Privatized Charter
School version may also be marketed.
- Additionally, the loathsome traditionally
Inductivist Computer Science

- The current evolution of Management Education increasingly assimilates
and incorporates the Entrepreneurial, not merely for it's glamour and
appeal, but for it's genuine utility and interest. Nevertheless,
Management Education is carefully structured to actually erode and stifle
persistence of genuine Entrepreneurship and, as ever, to encourage
emphasis upon matriculation into employment Careerism. For it remains
easier to pursue mock business plans for a grade. And students are subject
to attrition and exhausted from pursuing their dreams (at least just enough
more than they are actually in any way encouraged) so that they will then
tend to fall back upon struggling to get good grades and graduating to
become employed as consultants or else to fail, give up and drop out. And even whatever programs seeking to shuck off the baggage of MBA Academia and
Corporate Careerism, instead geared to the real world practices of
established Entrepreneurs, remain horrifically obscure to the outsider
- Practical Intelligence is the ability to discover the best fit
between oneself and the demands of ones environment, use acquired
placing problems into real-world context. Practical Intelligence is the common sense
or "street smarts" deemed weakest in highly
intelligent underachievers, feasibility study in practical application
of abstract creativity and analysis, the acumen to suit solutions according to
context of the actual requirements of specific problems, and thus confident and even
entitled socially skillful negotiation
of multiple communal and professional environments in order access the
resources necessary to their endeavors. "Purposive adaptation to,
shaping of, and selection of real-world environments relevant to one's
life" (Sternberg, 1984, p.271) Not only cognitive abilities
but attitudes and emotional factors, consciously or unconsciously, in
adaptation to, modification of, or selection and transition between
environments in order to meet goals. Sounds a lot like
Inductive conformity! Indeed, perceived
intelligence and real world performance of the same individual, may vary
between cultures, according to Sternberg. The problem, then, is
Anthropological, and should be skilled even subversively as applied
Anthropology, navigating, utilizing and even hacking the social system.
- The Applied Anthropology of Transparent Entrepreneurship
should begin in
user friendly demystification in cultivation of subversive Practical
Intelligence and competence, equipped also with logistical support infrastructure, all in order to
help realize the bold visions and aspirations of even hitherto inert
creativity and abstract reasoning, creative and analytical intelligence, even
by the hitherto uninitiated. And not merely Entrepreneurship as an educational subject, but
mentorship within the educational
institution as the mere pretext for a complete and viable Entrepreneurial
support system for anyone, an environment best adapted to the student
customer aspiring Entrepreneur.
