I'm Mark Frazier, president of Openworld, Inc., a volunteer network and consulting practice that specializes in innovative ways of removing barriers to entrepreneurship. I've worked in 56 countries on competitiveness reforms, technology parks, and startup incubators. My current focus is on resilient communities, freelance markets for telework, virtual games for actual change (Openworld Game), and challenge offers as a way for self-help groups to obtain enduring asset endowments. I've also specialized in special economic zones for knowledge-based industries, and microscholarship initiatives in economically struggling areas. On the home front, I'm active in Dayton, Virginia nonprofit groups working to improve the local business climate and attract creative ventures to the area. Earlier in my career, I was publisher and managing editor of Reason magazine. I'm a graduate of Harvard University and former Visiting Fellow of the Lehrman Institute, where I researched ways that neighborhood associations can take on municipal service responsibilities. Interests include hiking, drawing/architectural design, kayaking, flying, square foot gardening, archery, and reading.
