Nurturing Entrepreneurship Ecosystems

From Emergent Africa Wed Feb 20 2013, 06:00:00

Anna Nadgrodkiewicz writing in CIPE:

Entrepreneurship provides the creative force of economic development. Entrepreneurs lead economic change by creating new goods and services,new firms, and innovative solutions to local - and global - needs. At the same time, entrepreneurship plays a vital role in the development of democracy. It expands opportunity, unleashes individual initiative, and cultivates independent citizens who have a stake in society and democratic governance.
