Super Bowl Ad Encourages Aspiring Entrepreneurs

Among the many television commercials during this Sunday’s Super Bowl will be one from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, a nonprofit that focuses on fostering U.S. entrepreneurship.  During the football game, the animated, 30-second advertisement will air in four television markets:  New York, San Francisco, Washington, DC and Kansas City (where the foundation is based).

As pointed out in a CNNMoney article, a plug for entrepreneurship during the Super Bowl may seem out of place at first.  The ad, however, is part of a broader Kauffman Foundation campaign to inspire everyday Americans — including nacho munching football fans — to launch their own businesses.

You can learn more about the ad from CNNMoney’s article or from this Kauffman Foundation news release .

  1. Thank you for the heads up. I do want to look for it. “The next entrepreneur…hmmm”

    Apparently, the ad directs viewers to http://www.willitbeyou.com, a Kauffman website that provides resources to help would-be entrepreneurs get their plans moving. Maybe a future business owner will tell us one day that he or she found inspiration during a Super Bowl party!

    That is neat. You never know what “push” will work to make someone take the leap . . .

    And sometimes that “push” happens when you least expect it!
