What is the first thing you think of when you hear the term entrepreneur ? What is the first thing you think of when you see these pictures below ?
After looking at this pictures what is the first thing that comes to mind. Yep, you guessed it they are all white and successful entrepreneurs. Does success in entrepreneurship only come to white men and women ?
Is entrepreneurship only designed for the white community ? In today’s society its vary rare to hear about other cultures who are successful entrepreneurs without seeing the white communities success first.
This was the question that a brother posed at the Ted Talk which made a lot of sense when the question was posed. Now, he also said, what if we could change the perception of entrepreneurship for blacks by giving them different images like the ones below. Many of our males don’t have a proper image of entrepreneurship except what we see white males and females doing. What if the playing field was leveled off, and blacks could see more entrepreneurs who looked like them in business.
We got some work to do, but hey I am just sharing my point of view. I would love to hear your comments.
