Wondering who C. Dean Kring is and what he can offer you?

C. Dean Kring has been conducting independent research into entrepreneurial development since 1977. Among his notable activities to test his methodologies and theories was the founding of Services Cooperative Association as the first business/entrepreneurial/professional development cooperative in the United States and both the Entrepreneurial Development Center, the oldest business incubator in Texas, and the first Womens Business Center in the nation, all entirely without gifts, grants, contributions, donations or public funding.

His clients have won virtually every award for business growth in Houston and continue to do so.

He was the first to publish "Women process information, assess risk, utilize support systems and demonstrate team playing skills uniquely"  which led him to the design of a development methodology unique to women. As an indication of validation, in a 5 year period there were 6 women with these incubators recognized as "Women of Excellence" by the powerful and prestigious Federation of Houston Professional Women.

Dean also was the first to publish that women were starting businesses at a faster rate than men, resulting in the federal government establishing the Women's Business Center program across the United States.

Dean was also the first to advocate that entrepreneurship could be taught, with the best teachers being those entrepreneurs who had started successful businesses, resulting in colleges and universities around the nation commencing entrepreneurial programs using business owners in the classrooms.

Dean also predicted that Houston would become the "Startup Capital" of the United States. Now Houston has had more business starts, since 1999, than any other city in America.

Dean was also first to define the presence or absence of the controversial "entrepreneurial exponent" as the chief contributing factor in the success or failure of entrepreneurial endeavors.  "There exists within some people an inherent quality; an entrepreneurial exponent. With it, the likelihood of business success is dramatically increased." This led to the theory for design of the Master Mind Focus Group methodology for women business owners.

Creating 10 such groups from this session to further validate this benefit to women is the objective of this TELECONFERENCE every second Monday,  4:30 PM to 5:30 PM.

The plan is to establish Master Mind Focus Groups of women around the nation, with business support never more than a click away.

Dean is "recognized by the National Business Incubation Association as an industry leader and pioneer in business incubation" and as leading "one of Houston's core entrepreneurial groups" by the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
