PRAGUE, Czech Republic -- Czechs call their capital "Golden Prague" because of the scores of gilded steeples, spires and towers that loom over the city's medieval core. Foreigners coming here in recent years, though, see a different kind of gold along Prague's ancient cobblestone streets."Where there's change, there's opportunity," said Scott Otto, one of thousands of young foreign entrepreneurs to flock to Prague since the "Velvet Revolution" peacefully ended communism here 4 1/2 years ago. "When people hear of a part of the world that is newly opened to capitalism and entrepreneurship, they come."

As is the case every two years, it's being demonstrated once again that the Olympics are the opiate of the sports-watching American public. Patriotism is breaking out all over this country as our athletes, particularly the women, rack up gold and other medals at an inspirational pace. The summer games happen to coincide with our quadrennial decision on whether we as a people want to keep the president we have or vote for another one. And in this exercise, too, we are experiencing a predictable outbreak of wearing our patriotism on our sleeves, regardless of party.

Kiesha Haughton Smoots has taught dozens of low-income women in Baltimore how to write a business plan and get their ventures off the ground. She has bid on federal contracts for a woman-owned information technology company and run her own small-business consulting firm. In Prince George's County, she helped entrepreneurs get loans, land government contracts, increase sales and create jobs. But these days, banks are less willing to lend, consumers are cutting back and many small businesses are struggling from week to week to stay afloat.

So many folks in my generation (Gen Y) are going out on their own after college or after short stints in corporate America. Instead of thinking about how to get along with the boss, they're becoming their own boss, tackling all sorts of issues associated with running a business. So it's not entirely surprising that colleges and universities are seeing the entrepreneurial ambitions of their students and trying to help. I spent a lot of time reporting on the increase of entrepreneurship education, including in Maryland where many colleges and universities are offering courses and activities and expanding other opportunities, such as providing internships at startup companies and providing seed money for new businesses.

For a disciplined U.S. Naval Academy graduate who helped run nuclear-powered ships, Jason Hardebeck likes to move fast and break things. The 46-year-old entrepreneur, who grew up in Montana and Nevada, came to the East Coast to attend the academy in Annapolis. His career has spanned startups in Boston, Black & Decker in Towson and his own Baltimore-based startup, WhoGlue, which he started at the peak of the dot-com boom over a decade ago. He closed a chapter last fall by selling WhoGlue, an online network for private communities, to Facebook for an undisclosed amount.
