In this ongoing column, The Digest, Entrepreneur.com News Director Stephen J. Bronner speaks with food entrepreneurs and executives to see what it took to get their products into the mouths of customers. Linda Appel Lipsius's company offers a product that may as well be millennial bait: it's tasty, all natural, has compostable packaging and even has a social mission behind it. Seems like branding gold, right? Not so fast. The problem is that the product is bagged tea, and most Americans only drink tea when it's cold and bottled. "Tea is growing in grocery and food services, but when you [...]

Sometimes it feels as if there is little else in newspapers in the United Kingdom beyond Brexit, even if very little of what is written can be more than mere speculation at this stage.

It is no secret that women are demanding more from their professional lives -- challenge, meaning and growth opportunities are usually at the top of the list. Given that many employers are failing to create a fulfilling path and culture for most employees (close to 70 percent of employees are disengaged with their work), it’s no surprise that many are simply opting out of the corporate track. Over the past nine years, the number of women-owned businesses has grown at a rate five times faster than the national average, yet it is not for the reasons most think.   A [...]

I enjoyed a rare day out at the races at Ascot on Saturday – though I do intend to get a life and venture out far more often during the National Hunt season – but I cannot help feeling that you miss out on an awful lot by being at the track. And that is a not suck-up to Racing UK, especially on a day in which the channel had four afternoon meetings to contend with. But you can only be in one place at a time, and you do not tend to miss a trick, or an interview, when [...]

A recent report noted the “menace of inbreeding” at Aligarh Muslim University or AMU. However, academic inbreeding is common to most Indian universities even though it is widely accepted that it has a negative impact on the academic environment and institutional performance. India’s best universities – especially those which will soon count as ‘Institutions of Eminence’ – are advised against hiring their own if their aim is to become better institutions than they are. A committee was constituted by the University Grants Commission at the behest of the human resource development ministry to audit 10 central universities. The aim was [...]
