David Snow, D.M., director of the Kentucky Innovation Network Pikeville office and associate professor of business at the University of Pikeville-Coleman College of Business, has been published in the latest issue of the Small Business Institute Journal. The article, titled “Entrepreneurship Elsewhere: Examining the Entrepreneurial Characteristics of Eastern Kentucky Adolescents,” is based upon research conducted by Snow and Justin Prater, assistant director of the Kentucky Innovation Network office at UPIKE. The research indicates Eastern Kentucky high school seniors possess low levels of entrepreneurial attitude and the supporting factors of creative tendency, need for achievement and calculated risk-taking. Data collected also shows as many as 54 percent of Eastern Kentucky seniors plan to leave the region after graduation to pursue education and careers with no intention of returning.
