We are busting our four percent buttons. That's because this new project gets to announce that Carl Schramm is our newest Growth Fellow. Carl joins the Bush Institute and the 4% Percent Growth Project following a decade of leadership as President and CEO of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. Schramm pioneered the field of entrepreneurship and growth so well that our project and many others emulate him. Throughout his career, Schramm has succeeded in convincing the economics profession that concepts like firm formation and the process of innovation are crucial pillars upon which economic development rests. Yet Schramm’s contributions have not been merely on the theoretical level. He is an accomplished entrepreneur himself, having founded his own health-care company and merchant bank. At the Kauffman Foundation, he made it an important priority to provide practical advice and support to budding entrepreneurs. Now he's delving into new fields. With his unique style of intellectual leadership through a practical, action-oriented approach, Carl Schramm personifies what the Bush Institute is all about. We are thrilled to have him as a member of our team.
