Entrepreneurship Becoming Primary Source of SocioEconomic Value

Entrepreneurship Becoming Primary Source of SocioEconomic Value | Online Business Models | Scoop.it

From the article intro: "The slow decline of industrial manufacturing in developed nations and recent failures of financial capitalism across the globe have sent us searching for a new model of economic growth."


From the HBR newsroom: "The essay describes how entrepreneurship is increasingly becoming the world's primary source of socioeconomic value creation and how a new class of entrepreneurship, which the Startup Genome is calling Transformational Entrepreneurship, is taking center stage by synthesizing the scalable tools of Technology Entrepreneurship with the world-centric value system of Social Entrepreneurship.


Transformational Entrepreneurship also represents the guiding philosophy behind the Startup Genome."


Insightful. 8/10
