Evolution of Entrepreneurship
I recently came across a presentation from Bret Victor which was both educational and enlightening for me. Thought I will share this with you all and add in my 2 cents to see if all this make sense to the fabric of reality.
Current Entrepreneur Trend
I am seeing a shift in the business world where Social entrepreneurship is picking up a lot of steam among both the old and the younger generations. Social entrepreneurship by definition means identifying or recognizing a social problem and using entrepreneurial principles to organize, create, and manage a social venture to achieve a desired social change. You can build a social entrepreneurship as a non-profit venture or as a for-profit venture but with a strong intention to create a social change. The dynamics and sustainability of both these models do need cash flows and hence the business rules and functions remain the same.
One well-known social entrepreneur that comes to mind is Muhammad Yunus, founder of Grameen Bank a micro finance organization and community development bank which got started in Bangladesh to address a social problem that his country was facing and desperately needed attention. He got the idea of helping the people with the concept of micro loans which helped a lot of people in Bangladesh to stay out of poverty. Muhammad Yunus was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in 2006 for his work for his country. The concept of microfinance is now every popular in all developing countries and many local banks in these counties are now exploring it as a banking option as part of their business model.

Social Entrepreneurship will succeed since we are all connected…
As per the theory of Quantum mechanics, which Albert Einstein in 1935 called it Quantum entanglement, two particles in different locations, even if they are on other sides of the universe, influences each other and stays in communication with each other since they are connected. Albert Einstein named it the “spooky action at a distance”.
Recently, I saw in the news that Christoph Simon and Boris Braverman from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology published a paper which proposes a way in which the effect of quantum entanglement, this spooky action can be shown experimentally.
Since we all humans are spiritual biological beings who are embedded in matter and part of this universe, whose brain produces mind and consciousness, we are all connected. On the basis of Quantum entanglement we can say that every action from every individual on this planet counts to make this world a better place and generate an unified field.
On this basis it makes more sense now that business and entrepreneurs are leaning towards Social entrepreneurship.
Time for us all to plant a seed in your subconscious mind and see where that journey will take us.
