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.

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.
