     EntreWorld is a leading Internet resource for entrepreneurs seeking one-

     Entrepreneur Darien Dash, founder of DME Interactive, which empowers
 minorities through interactive technology and services, is supplying the first

 African-American market and a $490 billion Hispanic market in mind, Dash
 writes about DME Interactive's mission to expand the hardware and software
 infrastructure in minority communities that have been disenfranchised from
 technology.
     Also featured on StartupJournal.com will be the groundbreaking Global
 Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) 2000 Executive Report, which focuses on the
 variation in the level of entrepreneurial activity in 21 countries around the
 world.  The report was co-sponsored by the Kauffman Center for Entrepreneurial
 Leadership, which also sponsors EntreWorld.
     "EntreWorld's Entrepreneur's Bylines is an excellent opportunity for
 budding entrepreneurs to learn about a wide range of business experiences and
 to obtain valuable guidance on business topics that are important to them,"
 said Tony Lee, Editor in Chief at StartupJournal.com.
     "StartupJournal.com is making it possible for our Entrepreneur's Bylines
 to reach a broader audience," said Judith Cone, Director of EntreWorld.  "Our
 authors address a different theme each month and discuss their mistakes as
 well as successes.  This column provides insights that will help entrepreneurs
 ensure success with their own businesses."

 puts the most important information for entrepreneurs immediately at their
 fingertips.  The site is sponsored by the Kauffman Center for Entrepreneurial
 Leadership at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. EntreWorld centralizes
 handpicked, targeted content from top-quality small business sites, adds

 business founders and small business advisors, and makes all the information
 quick to find and put to work through its Entrepreneur's Search Engine.

 approach to accelerating entrepreneurship through educational programming and
