The pursuit of opportunity
There is an entrepreneurial imperative driving economic development around the world where creating, exploring, inventing, pioneering, imagining and innovating are the catalysts for growth of new and existing organizations. Yet the entrepreneurial imperative involves more than starting new ventures and reinvigorating existing ones.
It encourages a mindset that centers on seeking opportunities, taking risks beyond security, tolerating failure, bootstrapping, creatively leveraging resources, and having the tenacity to overcome obstacles and push an idea to implementation.
