"I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions." Proverbs 8:12
CNN.com recently published an article We Need to Unleash the World's Entrepreneurial Geniuses, which promotes the idea that solutions to many of the world's problems could be solved by those who live right in those cities and communities. I have said for a long time that our society needs more social entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial thinkers to help conquer many of the immense challenges that we are confronted with on a daily basis. Here is an excerpt from the article...
"Entrepreneurship is a powerful engine that can propel the global agenda forward. It is a major tool for reducing poverty, improving social conditions and confronting environmental challenges. It empowers people and generates solutions that help communities overcome old problems with new ways of thinking. It is an important driver of economic development, job creation and expanding opportunities for women and youth."
This is a key motivator behind Kingdom Business University Business Incubator initiative, where we aspire to establish Christian business incubators in the U.S. and around the world. We believe entrepreneurs are born and made. We believe they comes from all walks of life and socio-economic backgrounds. Here is another excerpt from the article:
"They [entrepreneurs] could be immigrants who travel the globe searching for better opportunities for themselves and their families, entrepreneurs-to-be who could be breathing life into communities ripe for revitalization, or social entrepreneurs who find innovative solutions to social challenges and change the world for the better."
I love to imagine how entrepreneurial thinking can produce creative ideas and innovative solutions to challenges that many impoverished communities face nationally and globally. The potential for great things to happen is unleashed when entrepreneurs, who have incredible vision, diverse skills, and a passion for progress, channel their collective energy to create something greater than what one individual could do on their own. I am one of those entrepreneurs. Are you?
