An extremely innovate entrepreneurship program designed by venture capital investor Greg Warnock was covered by the Salt Lake Tribune this week. The Junto program trains scores of would-be entrepreneurs and then through a competitive selection process, chooses a handful to fund each year. This year 10 Junto members will be funded with $50,000 each in startup capital. The Junto are divided into teams of five members. They share some equity in each others’ companies and therefore are motivated to help each other succeed.I am fortunate to be on the advisory board of Firepoll, the company profiled in the Tribune article. Will Allred is a tremendously energetic entrepreneur, he loves to learn, and his company has a fantastic instant polling solution that I believe will be a bit hit. Go Will!
