In 2013, we adopted the slogan “Promoting the Creative Spirit.” In 2014, we agreed on our mission: “To welcome and promote entrepreneurship in the community by bringing together valuable resources, professional support, and exposure.”
We have since mainly focused on the educational facet of our mission, which is to promote the creative spirit, primarily through a series of seminars and networking events in the Tri-State area, among those people who wish to start and grow businesses. Through our activities, we hope to build awareness of what resources are available in our area, foster an entrepreneurial ethos among our participants, and provide an entrepreneurially friendly community structure.
Our logo is the design of our long-standing leader and Chair of the Entrepreneurship Council, Mr. Mackroyce Corbitt, of Computer Printing Etc. The design is the letter “C,” with the upper segment of another letter “C” above it, separated by a narrow space, to create the illusion of the letter “E,” while enclosing the entire emblem in a circle. The “E” and “C” are self-explanatory, meaning “Entrepreneurship Council.” The circle, as originally explained by Mr. Corbitt, intends to represent both cyclicality and infinity.
Indeed, entrepreneurship is both cyclical and infinite. As enunciated by the eminent economist Dr. Joseph Schumpeter in 1942, entrepreneurship is creative destruction. When entrepreneurs create new ideas, they destroy old ideas. Yet every new idea eventually becomes an old one, hence the cyclical nature of the phenomenon. Meanwhile, the creative process is infinite. No amount of creativity today can ever drown out the creative potential of tomorrow. That is the essence of the entrepreneurial ethos and the driving force behind our movement.
