A ‘Conversation’ about Dyslexia & Entrepreneurship

Last week I was invited to Arizona by the Kauffman Foundation to attend a closed ‘conversation’  between a small group of thinkers and doers for the purpose of better understanding dyslexia and entrepreneurship, and the possible links between the two.  The group, consisting of successful dyslexic entrepreneurs, educators and leading scientific researchers, spent two and a half days exploring the possibility of introducing a new study to extend the initial findings of Professor Julie Logan in this area [1].

As a dyslexic entrepreneur and academic researcher myself, this is an area of research which is close to my heart and one which I will continue to follow closely in my blog.
