"Entrepreneurs create what they want to create!" :) We live in a beautiful time where those who want to do something great can go after it! 
WSJ’s Private Equity Beat covers the 18th Annual Columbia Business School Private Equity & Venture Capital Conference’s morning keynote address by Joseph L. Rice III, Chairman & Co-founder of Clayton, Dubilier & Rice and David Rubenstein, Co-founder & Managing Director of The Carlyle Group.

An expert from one of the WSJ stories is below –

"Speaking to a crowd of MBA hopefuls, Rubenstein’s comments drew more than a few laughs as he talked about how he defied his parents’ wishes for him to become a dentist.

But Rubenstein focused much of his remarks on entrepreneurship, as did Rice, co-founder and chairman of fellow buyout shop Clayton Dubilier & Rice. When asked whether one can create a Carlyle Group or CD&R today, both men encouraged future MBAs to try their hands at starting new ventures, be they private equity shops, hedge funds, real estate firms or other types of firms."

Here’s a link to another story from WSJ about the conference –

Insightful article. Thanks for sharing, Booth! I am actually thankful to have graduated in 2007 into a tough economy. The challenges my classmates and I have faced have made some of us stronger. We've had to go out and make our own opportunities; I think this initiative will continue to serve us well now and long into the future!
