Analysis to Creation: Turning Economics into Entrepreneurship
You might be a great cook, but that's no reason to open a restaurant. The only reason to start a business is to meet excess demand with a differentiated good or service. The study of economics gives us the tools to identify and analyze value, or a lack thereof, in a market. Entrepreneurship, on the other hand, is the pursuit of value creation. Niko Skievaski will discuss these concepts as he talks through his journey from aspiring economist to entrepreneur.
