Social Innovation: How travel helps entrepreneurs solve social problems locally and globally
Travel forces us to see the world with a different pair of eyes. By leaving our comfort zones and exploring the unknown we dispel myths, and remove ourselves from the idea of things which are unknown to us as being ‘exotic.’ Travel is an education which is unparalleled. One could argue there are no sufficient amount of books or classroom sessions which compare to the learning acquired through travel. For entrepreneurs travel is a powerful research tool, which pushes the mind to its limits and forces every human sense to work at its highest level. The entrepreneur who travels has the ability to connect the dots between social problems in his/her home country and abroad and source meaningful solutions which are highly impactful.
