Entrepreneurship Frameworks That Work

The romantic ideal of the entrepreneur as either the kid with the lemonade stand or the college dropout working from a Silicon Valley garage is real, but that's not the whole story. Entrepreneurs are also mums puzzling through how to pay the bills, and dads working to feed their kids. What all forms of entrepreneurship have in common is a tonne of hard work. Using a proven framework is a great way to take your first steps towards becoming an entrepreneur.

In my new book Survive & Thrive: Entrepreneurship Frameworks That Work, I lay out 12 frameworks for at least 16 entrepreneurial paths, including social ventures, science and technology, corporate, government and more. These frameworks are interrelated yet distinct. You might start down one path and realise that there is more to what you want or can do.

The Dalai Lama's flight from Lhasa and his perilous journey to India: 'A dizzying, frightening blur'

Right after the Great Prayer Festival on 9 March, Brigadier Fu, who was in charge of the (Chinese) PLA troops in Lhasa, invited the Dalai Lama for a theatrical performance at their headquarters. He instructed Phuntsok Tashi Taklha, the Dalai Lama's brother-in-law, who was his chief of security, that His Holiness should come without protection and in secret. The young Tendzin Choegyal (Ngari Rinpoche), studying at Drepung monastery, was also invited.

This highly irregular request caused great worry. The news spread like wildfire and on 10 March, large crowds gathered outside the Norbulingka palace to prevent the Dalai Lama from going, suspecting it was a ruse by the Chinese to hold him hostage or worse, harm him. By midday, the huge crowd of thirty thousand grew restive.

Here's how a smart field-to-fork network could revolutionise our food system

In May the EU revealed its new Field to Fork strategy, a comprehensive plan to overhaul food production at every stage to make it more resilient and environmentally friendly. Its success would make the EU a global leader in sustainability, helping to protect its food supply from threats such as climate change and pandemics. For that to happen, however, we need to see an even more fundamental change: a conversion of the current, fragmented tangle of food supply chains into a coherent and traceable supply network.

The Field to Fork strategy sets out a number of targets that it wants to achieve by 2030 - notably, to cut the use of pesticides by 50%, fertilisers by 20% and antimicrobials in farmed animals by 50%. On top of this, it wants organic farming to account for a quarter of farmed land within its borders and is calling on member states to cut, monitor and report on food wastage levels across the supply chain. This would ensure good quality food reaches more people at fair prices and in a more efficient way.
