alt“We Are All Born Entrepreneurs tells stories of sacrifice in the quest for the American Dream”

MALVERN, PA, June 23, 2010 – Steve Welch, the founder of Mitos Group and co-founder of DreamIt Ventures, announces the release of his book today that shares numerous stories on what drives entrepreneurs, and why we all strive for the American Dream. We Are All Born Entrepreneurs chronicles the struggles and successes of men and women across the country who overcame amazing odds to build successful businesses from scratch.

“As I interviewed entrepreneurs across the country I realized that each one followed a different path, but there were also certain traits and skills that all successful entrepreneurs possessed,” said Welch. “I compiled over a dozen stories that I believe provide learning experiences for aspiring entrepreneurs and also answered the question of why so many of us find purpose in entrepreneurship.”

“My goal in this book is not to provide a road map for entrepreneurs, but rather a realistic understanding of the skills that need to be developed to build a business from scratch, while at the same time providing insight into the tricks and traps that other successful entrepreneurs have identified,” added Welch.

A Mechanical Engineering graduate of Penn State University, Steve started his first big entrepreneurial success, Mitos, in 2001 with hardly a cent to his name.  Without ever raising outside money Steve built Mitos into a global company in the biotec manufacturing field prior to selling it in 2007 to a Fortune 500 company.  

Following the sale of Mitos, Steve co-founded DreamIt Ventures, a firm based in Philadelphia that helps entrepreneurs get their business ideas up and off the ground by providing them all the resources needed for success. Steve is also an Eisenhower Fellow who is traveling to countries around the globe to develop the best practices to spur entrepreneurship.
