Creating More Entrepreneurial Nations
Why do developing countries need more entrepreneurs? Discover
Modern economies are struggling with slow economic growth, high government deficits and nagging unemployment. Traditional development strategies lure companies from one location to another, but rarely create new wealth. Meanwhile, persistent unemployment, especially among the youth, is considered a key cause of rootlessness and alienation. How can we solve these problems?
The solution is to create stronger communities of educated, creative and confident entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship is not just about business; but also personal development, innovation, curiosity, and learning to be of service to others. Successful entrepreneurs create innovation and jobs. As more entrepreneurs succeed, they encourage new entrepreneurs, and the veteran are better able to support the growth and development of the next generation. Discover how, by creating more entrepreneurial communities, we can turn success into a renewable resource!
