Entrepreneur Ketan Makwana shares his take on the true power of entrepreneurship as the ultimate tool to fuel progress. The secret lies in creating value by means of innovation. The natural progression between revolutionary and evolutionary innovation maintains the momentum necessary to boost development. To exemplify, Makwana shares stories of success that teach key lessons in entrepreneurship, from TOMS’ and Duolingo’s socially disruptive endeavours, to relenting persistence in the owners of Innocent Smoothies.
