The state of entrepreneurship in the developing world
- Entrepreneurs in developing countries can't just be domain specialists.
In this interview, Professor Tarun Khanna discusses his new book, Trust: Creating the Foundation for Entrepreneurship in Developing Countries. Khanna stresses that on top of specializing in a particular area, entrepreneurs working in developing countries must construct the conditions for success. How do you create these conditions? He encourages entrepreneurs to start by building a foundation of trust. Partnerships, Khanna argues, are essential for creating impact at scale in societies where partnering mechanisms are often nascent.
