Neighborhood College? Self-directed learning groups are forming.

University of Denver Alumni Magazine

Thanks to the University of Denver for the plug in the new edition of our alumni magazine that just came out. It plugs the most current version of the idea to create small neighborhood groups for the purpose of education and strengthening the social capital in the neighborhood. Here's what they said:

They were kind to give me this small mention in the back pages that give highlights of alumni activity and milestones year by class year.

It makes it sound like my little book on startup is new, which is not the case. In 1994 when it was first published it expressed some very unique ideas, some of which have since been expressed in a more helpful way, the best in my opinion is Just Start (Harvard Business Review Press) which was co-written by the then President of Babson College.

To see my little book online just Google John Wren Daring Mighty Things and it comes right up. The Kindle version can be read online, or a paperback version can be ordered.

If you'd be willing to start a group in your neighborhood, we'd love to help you. Each Saturday at 10:30 a.m I've been holding a Google+ hangout for those engaged in the process, let me know if you'd be interested in joining us next time.
