The future of entrepreneurship and start-ups

Published 24 March 2017 @ 12:54 PM, by Jennifer Burke

"We live in a day and age in which empowerment and individuality are embraced, and this mindset is only gaining momentum. The future without a doubt belongs to entrepreneurs and this is something to be really excited about. Long gone will be the days in which our commerce was dominated and monopolized by big box corporations and in will come heart-centered businesses in which people will be offering services and products full of passion. As a generation that values happiness over 9-5 cubicle paychecks envelops upon us, we begin to understand the bold transformation of the business world."

Gabriela identify few of the momentous shifts:

  • Digital nomads
  • Aggression dissolves
  • Personal brands
  • Banding together
  • Networks become currency
  • No more cost controls
  • Internet of things
  • Heart-Centric Businesses
  • Choices become all your own
  • Total life transformation
