Inner City Entrepreneur

— NPR's Chris Arnold profiles a New York entrepreneur who wanted to do more than run his import/export business. At first, Steve Mariotti (mar-ee-OT-tee) tried to teach math to inner-city kids, but his message just wasn't getting through. So he decided to teach the students how they could start their own businesses. Now Mariotti is instructing high school TEACHERS as part of his non-profit National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship.
