Entrepreneurship Fuels the Economy

In recent years there has been increasing recognition of the pivotal role played by the entrepreneur in economic development. According to the respected economist William Baumol the entrepreneur is “an indispensable component of growth and prosperity.”


Outlook and View

Many of today`s business giants were once start-ups. And in their start-up phase they encountered issues as every other small business - finding the financing to start and grow their business and bring their product or service to market.

While not every start-up becomes a multinational, many do grow and prosper, creating jobs, skills and opportunity, providing much needed products and services and making real differences to people`s lives every day.
