David & Goliath Must Dance™ Lunch - Travel, Leisure, Entertainment, Media Ecoystem

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Tuesday, 14 June 2016.

1. What is a David & Goliath Must Dance event ?

David & Goliath Must Dance events are hosted by EntrepreneurCountry Global in order to explore the challenges and opportunities faced by an industry that is transforming, in real-time, into an ecosystem. We see Ecosystems as facilitators of future marketplaces. Ecosystems are like nature. EntrepreneurCountry Global sees its role as helping to organize the raw assets, the climate, the inhabitants, the settlements, the needs and the offerings so that sustainable economics emerge and successful businesses prosper. It is precisely because this ecosystem is a bit ambiguous that we are interested in it.

A history and a calendar of these events are listed here.

Written by Julie Meyer on Monday, 13 June 2016.

juliemTwenty five years ago next month, Czechslovakia was born after a half century of the Communist darkness. Throughout November 1989, students protested in Bratislava and Prague. A two hour general strike was held on the 27 of November throughout the country causing the entire Communist Party leadership to resign including Milos Jakes the puppet General Secretary.

Was it worth my while to build relationships with investors there? I never really thought so. And I've never gone to Dubai just to visit a resort. The last time I passed through was after an INSEAD board meeting at the Abu Dhabi campus. I drove the hour to Dubai and met with some entrepreneurs. And here's the thing: Dubai is changing.

jm33The European venture capital industry is really just making money for America.

Much of the European venture capital industry has one play in their playbook: to find the best European tech entrepreneur from Helsinki to Madrid, and to sell their business to a US tech platform company. Twenty five of these buy the overwhelming majority of European venture back start-ups.

EntrepreneurCountryTV: Developing an Unfair Advantage & Unlocking Your Unique Contribution – What INSEAD Taught Me

Insead’s 1-year MBA tops FT rankings

‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.'

(Marianne Williamson)

There is nothing like spiking your own drink to pass out

Written by Julie Meyer on Tuesday, 15 March 2016.

julie m 1"And it ought to be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things. Because the innovator has for enemies all those who have done well under the old conditions, and lukewarm defenders in those who may do well under the new. This coolness arises partly from fear of the opponents, who have the laws on their side, and partly from the incredulity of men, who do not readily believe in new things until they have had a long experience of them. Thus it happens that whenever those who are hostile have the opportunity to attack they do it like partisans, whilst the others defend lukewarmly, in such wise that the prince is endangered along with them." - The Prince by Nicolo Machiavelli CHAPTER VI
