Opportunities for innovation and entrepreneurship in emerging global markets: DISCUSSION
Discuss opportunities for innovation and entrepreneurship in emerging global markets, particularly those with a growing middle class, or those where harsh economic conditions dictate the need for innovation if basic human needs are to be met. • What steps must be taken to encourage innovation in these markets? • Will the same incentives and techniques be effective in all emerging markets? • What can be done in instances where government does not encourage or is even hostile to entrepreneurship? Design and present a list of talking points you might use when you meet with industry and government leaders in one of these markets as you attempt to build a creative mind-set among local civic leaders, businesses, and citizens. The final paragraph (three or four sentences) of your initial post should summarize the one or two key points that you are making in your initial response. Your posting should be about 1 page (400 to 500 words) in length.
