Entrepreneurship is booming. Whilst its notion is often tied to technological innovation in Western countries, the spirit of entrepreneurship is perceived very differently in developing countries with emerging economies. Here, innovations that solve social problems such as supporting a community with a supply of food or ensuring that children have a basic education are needed. The Entrepreneur introduces 3 inspiring examples in an article published this week of how entrepreneurial women, who had to fight hard to be heard, made a difference in their communities through applying their entrepreneurial talent.
With the same vigour, the Global Week of Entrepreneurship has set MAKE IT HAPPEN as their motto to promote entrepreneurial women and ideas with a social dimension this year.
We are also excited to share that your fellow enterprising colleagues have invited women leaders to their school and participate in the campaign to inspire young girls to become future entrepreneurs and successful ones, too. Join them!
