Celebrating unconventional approaches and ideas

Have you noticed how many incredibly successful entrepreneurs have a very unconventional attitude to life and business? Think Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates to name but three. Perhaps that is what is needed in order to change the world for the better through the inventive ideas and different ways of doing things displayed by entrepreneurs. There is no doubt that entrepreneurship takes imagination and perhaps even a dash of insanity at times - perhaps it is precisely this combination of personality traits that enable entrepreneurs to change the world. After all, they often have the vision to see the world as they would like it to be tomorrow, not how it is today. Entrepreneurs pursue the ideas that others deem crazy at the time - they intrinsically understand that logic and common sense is limiting, but that unconventional ideas and ways of doing things can change things for the better. This is why the world needs more entrepreneurs who have the vision to address so many of the challenges facing us today, and no more so than here in Africa.
