Entrepreneurs and the Super Bowl

Super Bowl viewers in San Francisco, Kansas City, New York, and Washington DC got to see an ad that other viewers across the country did not see. It was a 30-second public service message produced by the Kauffman Foundation for Entrepreneurial Activity.

The ad is part of the Foundation’s “Will it be You?” program that challenges viewers to turn their ideas into new businesses. The message was in Kauffman’s popular “sketchbook” animation format and was shown at the Super Bowl to honor entrepreneurs and encourage new viewers to take the entrepreneurial step.

Here is the actual ad that was shown:

The Kauffman Foundation wants viewers to visit their “Will it be You?” website, to view the resources and programs offered by the foundation to help people start and grow their new small businesses.

If you are thinking of starting a new business, or growing one you may already have, it should be well worth your effort to check out Kauffman’s website.

If any of you saw the message, did you also check out the “Will it be You?” website?

  1. Since I didn’t watch the Super Bowl (nor do I live in any of those regions you mentioned) I didn’t see the commercial until you just posted about it in your blog. I checked out their site and it looks pretty extensive as a portal to connect with programs and opportunities. Definitely a great resource – thanks for sharing!

    1. Jeff–Thanks for the comment. I have followed the Kauffman Foundation for several years now, as they seem to be the only organization in the country that is dedicated to the small entrepreneur, especially new entrepreneurs. They do have a great deal of information to help new and young growing businesses.
