Looking at entrepreneurship as a real social game-changer

For many people, when they hear the word ‘entrepreneur’, they think of innovators, wealth creators, risk takers, startups and business mavericks. However, what if those same peole were to start thinking of entrepreneurship in a completely different way, and instead see it as a powerful social game-changer in our world? Steve Mariotti, co-author of 28 books on entrepreneurship, global speaker, and the founder of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), a global nonprofit organization that has educated more than half a million students, passionately believes in entrepreneurship as a transformational experience. His latest book, An Entrepreneur’s Manifesto, takes a completely different view of the role of entrepreneurship, seeing it as a catalyst for social change, and a way of closing the wealth gap. He believes that entrepreneurship can completely transform the lives of communities and people in schools, prisons, villages, and inner cities. Something to think about!
