It is an exciting time to be an entrepreneur. The world is finally waking up to the idea that entrepreneurs are engines of economic growth and key drivers of global prosperity. Entrepreneurs Step Up for the Global Goals
One only has to look at Goal 8 of the Sustainable Development Goals, which addresses jobs and economic growth, to see that there is a new recognition of how the business sector can help accelerate progress on shared global initiatives. I strongly believe that entrepreneurs are a key driving force for change in the world, and by encouraging entrepreneurship on a global level, we can achieve social and economic impact and help lift millions out of poverty.
