These are uncertain times and we are in uncharted territory. We don’t know where we’re going or how we’re going to get there. We’re all looking for ways to harness our creative energy, to reveal untapped opportunities. This is how we will find our inspiration to participate in the new economic, environmental and social society we all must help to create.

Persistent entrepreneurship will be rewarded greatly.
