Discussion Topic:
“Entrepreneurship on a Burning Platform.” Sometimes the dumbest ideas are great ones and the greatest ideas are short-lived. As an entrepreneur, it is not always enough to discover the “next big thing.” Often, successful entrepreneurs capitalize on timing, change, and competitive weakness in order to build great businesses.
