Invisible capital is not any one thing. It’s a complex set of factors: our skills, knowledge, networks, resources, and experiences. These can create significant advantages, even if they are not consciously exploited. Rabb details how people can evaluate the components of their own invisible capital and develop a plan to build on strengths and mitigate weaknesses. He draws on his extensive experience as an entrepreneur, his tenure on Capitol Hill and the White House Conference on Small Business, his experience managing an urban business incubator, and his involvement with numerous family-owned businesses.

Chris Rabb is a consultant, writer, and public speaker focusing on the intersection of social identity, media, civic engagement and entrepreneurship. He is a fellow at Demos, a non-partisan public policy research and advocacy organization based in New York City. He is also a visiting researcher at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. In 2001, Chris was awarded an American Marshall Memorial Fellowship by the German Marshall Fund of the U.S.
