Meanwhile, Back at the Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence

Yesterday, the Post-Gazette this nice Q & A [with the occasional transcription error] with the new director of the Small Business Development Center at Pitt's Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence, Tom Juring. Tom is the second non-Pittsburgher to take over a big chunk of the IEE's economic development program in the last couple of years -- Sherry Balmat, who now runs PantherLabWorks, is the first. And Tom, like Sherry, brings to Pittsburgh a healthy dose of California-style skepticism of the "we don't do things that way" mentality.
