Inspiring Community Entrepreneurs

Inspiring Community Entrepreneurs

The entrepreneur always searchers for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity (Peter F Drucker, Innovation and Entrepreneurship – Practice and Principles)

How true when you consider successful not-for-profits that are continually listening for change, and rather than fight it to extend the status quo, seek out the opportunities and get moving.  Change doesn’t stop them – They innovate and adapt.

We are keen to share your stories to inspire and motivate.  If you have a story to share, contact us.

Listen to ordinary people who think entrepreneurial and are champions in their community.
