The habits of successful entrepreneurs are becoming increasingly valuable in the modern workplace. Global development is entering a phase where entrepreneurship will increasingly play a more important role. There are at least three reasons for this, each particular to certain types of countries. Firstly, in the West, the managed economy of the 1970s-2000s, characterized by reliance on big business and mass production, has given way to a so-called entrepreneurial economy. Here knowledge-driven goods and services are now more flexibly provided by smaller firms, and the emergence of a creative class requires a less interfering but more facilitating state. Keeping this spirit ABS had organized a National Seminar on “Integrating Development with Entrepreneurial Advancement and Leadership” on September 13,’2013.
