Drawing on hours of interviews with entrepreneurs of all kinds from across the country, the Elements of Entrepreneurship project draws a picture of what it is like to be an entrepreneur in the United States right now. The site features two ways of engaging with the story, one user-directed the other author curated. Administrators of the site have fine-level access to edit all of the site's content. A controlled vocabulary of terms allows all content to be organized and re-organized according to elements and element sub-themes. The site was architected as an on-going platform where new Elements can be added and existing ones updated. The next iteration of the site will be online in Fall 2012.
