Topic 1 | Entrepreneurship in the Developing World - The Crisis of Mobility
+ More Information
Although the United Nations creates plans to tackle the issues of the world, solutions are rarely achieved without the entrepreneurial and business minds who implement them. If you look around, you’ll find that entrepreneurship lies at the center of every successful economy. While the top economies create opportunities for and encourage innovation, the developing areas of the world lack the same entrepreneurial boom. You may have heard of the quote “Give a man a fish, and he’ll be satisfied for a day, but teach a man to fish, and he’ll be satisfied for a lifetime.” Likewise, successful entrepreneurship in developing regions would ideally create lifelong solutions to the growing issues that exist. You’ll be learning this lesson in BVC, as you use your entrepreneurial prowess to develop a company that addresses a pressing issue in the developing world: mobility.
