One Word

Courage, Creativity, Bold, Be Humble, Grit, Kindness …

These are just a few of the words of advice offered by Silicon Valley leaders to aspiring entrepreneurs. They are featured in the One Word educational initiative led by the Exponential Center. The multiformat project aims to inspire and motivate people to think about what it takes to start and build a company. It includes a variety of activities in the lobby of the Computer History Museum. Follow us on social media and share your entrepreneurial inspiration and stories with #onewordinspires.
