“The Morning Briefing” is SmartPlanet’s daily roundup of must-reads from the web. This morning we’re reading about entrepreneurship.
1.) Meet the tireless entrepreneur who squatted at AOL. For two months last fall, Eric Simons secretly took up residence inside the Internet giant’s Palo Alto, Calif., campus, eating free food, enjoying gym access, and building a startup in the process.
2.) Entrepreneur’s visa for highly skilled proposed by senators. Senators proposed easing visa limits for highly skilled immigrants and foreign graduates with an entrepreneur’s visa.
3.) Move over entrepreneurs, here come the intrapreneurs. In the wake of Facebook‘s IPO, and despite where the stock goes from here, one thing is clear: Entrepreneurs — especially successful ones — are the new rock stars of business culture.
