Creating a Business Idea for Startup Entrepreneurs
Karndee Leopairote, Thammasat University said, Creativity is the root of entrepreneurship.
Without our creative ideas, we cannot do anything for the good of our business. Creativity involves two processes: thinking, then producing.
Walt Disney once said, “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.”
Being a creative entrepreneur is a difficult path for every businessman. Yet it is not all about your destination but a journey. A journey to pass all obstacles for success.
“Creativity, as has been said, consists largely of rearranging what we know in order to find out what we do not know. Hence, to think creatively, we must be able to look afresh at what we normally take for granted.”George Kneller
