Are you an entrepreneur? If so, you are one of the rising billion – the fastest growing economic sector in history.
In the 1950’s, the rise of corporations and the middle class grew to several 100 million, when the world had a population of 2.5 billion.
Today, there’s 7 billion of us, and in the 1st 20 years of the new 21st Century entrepreneurs are growing from 4% to 12% of the population.
We’ve grown from less than 200 million in 2000, to over 400 million today, to 1 billion by 2020 – this sector is 10x the size of the 9-to-5 workforce created in the first 20 years of the industrial revolution.
This movement is already transforming the world in the most incredible ways, from how we share resources, advance technology and find solutions to impact the world.
So if you’re an entrepreneur, you’re not alone. You’re in good company.
And you’re part of a historic sea change that is already shaping the future in the most amazing ways.
