Founded in 1996 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, our Mission is to spread wealth creation around the world by encouraging entrepreneurship and sharing knowledge to those who educate and support entrepreneurs. We put “global” in global entrepreneurship.
GCASE – Global Community for Advancing Studies on Entrepreneurship We research, organize, and share valuable knowledge in an “open-source” format that advances the studies on entrepreneurship, and bridges the gap between theory and practice. Non-profit and educational organizations around the world are encouraged to leverage our ideas, our information, and our online support to advance and support entrepreneurship.
We support educational activities including: advancing knowledge through research, and disseminating knowledge by means of the internet, researching and writing books, producing newsletters, editorials, monographs, seminars, lectures, conferences and the like.
Our books and course materials are used in the Top 10 best graduate programs in the USA that teach entrepreneurship, and 8 of the Top 10 best undergraduate programs in the USA that teach entrepreneurship.
Through our Global Entrepreneurship Program we facilitate introductions to investors, professional service providers, and other entrepreneurs. Using our exclusive “Roadmap to Entrepreneurial Success” we have helped entrepreneurs raise over $100 million.
Please contact us if you have information, a research report, an article, to review and publish.
The Focus of Our Publications And Research
We are continuously conducting research and producing projects in the fields of global entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial management practices, business planning, and venture capital.
As the pace of business competition accelerates, seat-of-the-pants management becomes ever more dangerous. In order to survive, entrepreneurs operating their ventures in uncertain environments need a focused “path to profitability.”
Our Vision is to empower entrepreneurs with a roadmap and support that guides them through the transition from start-ups, to micro-enterprises, and on to small and medium-sized businesses that create jobs, lead innovation, and increase economic development in their local communities.
- What is a global entrepreneur?
- What is entrepreneurial management?
- What is entrepreneurial capitalism?
- What is the entrepreneurial life cycle?
- What are the basic business management principles that all entrepreneurs need to master?
- What is the best way to help entrepreneurs build a high-profit business that supports their local economies?
What determines the difference between success and failure depends on how entrepreneurs can understand and manage the following:
- What is this venture about? (mission and values statement)
- Where should it go? (goals and objectives)
- How will it get there? (growth strategy)
- What does it need to get there? (people and resources)
- What structure is best? (organizational capabilities)
- How much money does it need and when? (financing strategy)
- How will it recognize the final destination? (vision of success)
Good entrepreneurial management is vitally important to the economic health not only of American businesses, but also of businesses in the rest of the world. Because of its importance, entrepreneurial management should be thoroughly understood, but this is easier said than done.
The field is relatively complex, and it is undergoing constant change in response to shifts in economic conditions. In addition, there is a substantial body of knowledge, concepts, and tools that entrepreneurs need to know in order to launch and grow a company successfully.
All of this makes entrepreneurship stimulating and exciting but also challenging and sometimes discouraging.
