The world is facing some of its biggest challenges, especially in developing countries where poverty, hunger, poor health, and environmental degradation persist. Entrepreneurship has the potential to bring about innovative and sustainable solutions that can improve the lives of people and communities in these countries — but not if we continue to see the bottom of the pyramid as just another market to exploit and swoop in on, like colonial-era vultures eating up the very solutions that need time to grow.
The world is changing rapidly, and the traditional ways of doing business are no longer effective in solving the global problems we face. As a result, there is a growing need for a new generation of entrepreneurs who are capable of thinking differently and creating regenerative businesses and solutions that promote a better future for the planet and its people.
We need a rebellious entrepreneur, someone who challenges the status quo and traditional ways of doing business, while also actively working to create a better future for people and the planet. This type of entrepreneur is driven by a deep sense of purpose and values, which guide their business decisions and practices. They are willing to take risks and challenge conventional thinking to find innovative solutions that create positive change. They believe in the power of collaboration, teamwork, and collective action to achieve their goals.
