Forbes Magazine has attempted to quantify ‘coolness’ and Houston tops the list as America’s Coolest City. (We weren’t surprised, but probably the non-Houstonians were.) Mayor Annise Parker credits our tolerance, our hospitality, our food, our Texan—that’s entrepreneurial--spirit and so many other reasons. Houston is the MOST diverse city in the U.S.; did you know we print voting ballots in FOUR languages? Did you know Houston’s number of theatre seats ranks second only to New York? Laura Max Nelson interviews the Bayou City’s cool mayor.
Russ is in Santa Clara, CA at the Business Matchmaking 2012 event interviewing Hector Barreto, chairman of the Latino Coalition. Barreto, formerly head of the Small Business Administration, is nearing the end of his tenure with the Coalition. Now that he has enough time to resume his own innovative passions, he has launched Tributo Tequila in honor of his father. Always a good interview, Barreto really has his thumb on the pulse of the entrepreneurial culture.
The world continues to shrink. Ours is a global marketplace, an international economy and entrepreneurism is no different. Russ interviews Barry White, U.S. Ambassador to Norway. In this segment, Ambassador White compares and contrasts American and Norwegian entrepreneurship.
Russ interviews Houston mayor, Bill White. Mr. White talks about learning the importance of the competitive advantage during his experiences with entrepreneurship; from cutting his teeth at a small law firm to being CEO of a diversified firm. He explains how he uses that knowledge to take a business management approach to public service in this city of ample opportunity, and how citywide mobile wireless computing will be a key part of Houston's continued growth.
