EDUCATORS’ PERSPECTIVE Pizarro’s forces for the disputed city of Cuzco. It was unclear from the king’s edict whether Cuzco was to remain in Pizarro’s control or whether it should be under Almagro’s jurisdiction. The ensuing battle led to the defeat and capture of Almagro by Pizarro’s brother Hernando, who summarily executed him. Although the Company of the Levant was wildly successful, the end result for many of those involved, including Diego de Almagro, was less than optimal. Did the conquistadors take on too much risk? What can today’s entrepreneur learn from their long ago adventures in the New World? We will take up these questions in the next installment of Educators’ Perspective.  Brian Grinder is a professor at Eastern Washington University and a member of Financial History’s editorial board.
