As tectonic forces reshape business as we know it, what can aspiring and seasoned entrepreneurs alike learn from those who have successfully harnessed their ambition to become leaders in their markets?
That’s exactly what our new book, Daring to Compete, explores.
Business leaders seeking new perspectives and real-world examples of practical growth strategies can benefit from the experiences of those who have demonstrated that the path to tomorrow’s opportunities is built on bold actions today.
Profound market changes mean entrepreneurial business leaders need to think differently about how to achieve their growth ambitions. Revolutionary emerging technologies, changing customer behaviors, new models for funding, talent, strategic alliances and much more are transforming the business landscape at unparalleled speed and scale.
Stories from the winners’ circle reveal key insights into growth
In Daring to Compete, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year winners share their unique stories of successfully navigating these forces to translate their vision into multibillion dollar success. These 15 leaders — representing diverse regions, sectors and backgrounds and including 6 EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year winners — reveal the business models, personal traits and practical strategies that have equipped them to overcome obstacles, unleash creativity and harness growth drivers to achieve market leadership.
As Wendy Guillies, President and CEO of the Kauffman Foundation says, “there's nothing like hearing directly from those who have done it…who've turned their ideas into market-leading companies. Daring to Compete is for all the makers, doers and dreamers who are starting or growing a business.”
Their stories are inspiring and provide practical illustration of the characteristics and choices that can equip innovators in any organization to transform their businesses, and perhaps earn the EY Entrepreneur of the Year honor along the way.
