The State Department publishes five series of electronic journals with a new journal in one of the series appearing every month. Here are two articles that seem extremely pertinent to development and social entrepreneurship.
- Venture Capital Meets High-Tech (PDF - 5.45 MB): This eJournal explores the phenomenon that drives uncounted Americans — and now citizens of other nations — to create fledgling “start-up” businesses that explore and exploit the latest developments in high technology.
