The needs of an entrepreneur
“I find out what the world needs. Then, I go ahead and invent it.” – Thomas Alva Edison, Inventor and entrepreneurWhen do entrepreneurs solve big problems? Design thinking and problem solving really help when you have no clue how to begin. Problems are a kick-starter for idea generation. Problem solving is a method to think critically, and can be used to make improvements and to make things more efficient. Who are the entrepreneurs and designers that solve big problems? Two brothers who owned a bicycle shop were the ones who invented and built the first successful airplane. Everyone who has passion and skills and seeks out problems in their environment has the opportunity to make transformational change. Where are the problems that need to be solved? All over the world there are people who suffer from poverty, violence, hunger and lack of education. In your neighbourhood there may be single parents who struggle to give their kids a decent life, and young people or people over 50 without a job. I am passionate about solving people’s need to get to know something immediately. I may be able to solve this problem through the design of a company. Please share what major problem in the world, or in your neighbourhood, you are passionate about solving.
