    By Vadim Slavin (Managing Partner, Monthly Ventures)

    I recently read a post by Fred Kofman, a professor of leadership and coaching, titled “7 Steps to Prove That You Are Listening”. It was addressing men, husbands, fathers suggesting how to open up the channel of communications with their wives, daughters, significant others. What was interesting is that I realized this was the intent only after getting to the end of the post. I read the whole thing with the impression that the tips were for effective networking for anyone.

    Women 2.0 encourages me to build a healthy nucleus for a cell that aspires to thrive.

    Democratizing Entrepreneurship: The Next Generation Of Networks

    Online connections give entrepreneurs access to a global network of founders, mentors and advisors.

    By Lesa Mitchell (Vice President, Kauffman Foundation)

    In 1950, Ewing Kauffman launched his pharmaceutical company, Marion Laboratories Inc., in the basement of his modest home in Kansas City. During his first year in business, he had sales of $36,000 and a net profit of $1,000. By the time he sold his company to Merrell Dow in 1989, it had become a global diversified healthcare giant with nearly $1 billion in sales.
