Liberal Entrepreneurs

by Lee Stranahan

This is sort of a paralell to Bob's question about the left wing equivalent of Rush the Limbaugh - who are the big champions of progressive entrepreneurship?

This is one area where conservatives seem to have a perceptual lead; getting people to think that the Republicans are the party of business and especially small business, start-ups, entrepreneurs and achievable 'America Dream' style success. For a lot of people who really aren't all that political,.the GOP has gotten their vote by associating themselves with concepts like success, wealth, and hard work.A quick Google search of the phrase "Liberal Entrepreneurs" came up with less than 800 results. A search for ""conservative entrepreneurs" shows 5,200.

Can you think of some example of progressive or liberal writers / media personalities / speakers who talk about these issues a lot?
