How innovation is driving a new generation of entrepreneurship

The speed of innovation has been remarkable over the past 18 months—but so, too, has disruption and the pace of business failures. What’s next for global entrepreneurship? National Entrepreneurship Month is an opportune time to assess the current and future state of technological disruption as well as the professional and personal challenges entrepreneurs face in scaling their companies.
