Executive Summary

Entrepreneurs shouldn't wait for the economy to rebound before starting a business, venture capital and entrepreneurship panelists said. People should begin now because smart people are plentiful, infrastructure costs are low and labor is cheap. "Initial financing is hard but all other aspects of starting a business are favorable," said Jason Heltzer, principal at OCA Ventures.
