Celebrating Entrepreneurship

If you think the Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation is a national treasure that should be expanded and scaled up, then you might want to support The Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (@InnovationontheMall). The organizers:

... propose that a new Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation on the National Mall occupy the now vacant Arts & Industries Building. The Center would restore the building’s original mission: to showcase to the public and encourage excitement about understanding the concepts underlying innovation and the process of invention.

The original purpose of the Arts & Industries building, to showcase and celebrate American ingenuity, will be adapted fluidly for a new mission. Exhibits, educational programs, and convenings will catalyze and convey transformational new ideas creating value for society.

Check it out and spread the word!
