Description

Why is it so important to talk about entrepreneurship? What role do entrepreneurs play in our future?  How do entrepreneurs – traditional or corporate – fit into the future? Change is accelerating, driven partly by exploding rates of technological change; rapidly changing political, demographic and economic climates; an increasing awareness of sustainable development; and a laser focus on preserving the environment. As a result, governments and business organizations are pressed to better anticipate change and understand the implications and opportunities that may evolve in a future that promises to be very different from today.  Entrepreneurs will play a critically important role in shaping this future, so it’s important that we consider this unique opportunity for entrepreneurs from the outset.
