25 de marzo de 2015    |  Africa Development Entrepreneurship Magatte Wade
Magatte Wade takes an impassioned look at the power of entrepreneurs to change the world. What poor people need, she explains, are jobs. Drawing on her experience as a successful entrepreneur from the West African country of Senegal, she argues that creating business environments that promote entrepreneurship is the first step towards generating much-needed jobs. Magatte also examines the current state of economic education and how to encourage the entrepreneurial spirit among students. She encourages the audience to engage others in productive conversations and debates on how free markets, competition, and entrepreneurship can be effective weapons in the global fight against poverty.
