The Bold Beginnings Issue
Volume One: Issue One
When we think of innovation in entrepreneurship, progressive education, healthcare or policies, many of us are accustomed to looking towards North America and Europe. Yet the majority of the world’s population and many of its most pressing problems exist outside of these regions.
Emerging Innovation was born out of a radical desire to look beneath the surface, beyond commonly held perceptions. We wanted to share the stories that are often missing from the global conversation.
This first issue is a collection of conversations held during the course of 2015 with emerging innovators, activists and entrepreneurs originating from cities as different as Jakarta in Indonesia, Hargeisa in Somaliland or Bucaramanga in Colombia. These changemakers told us about their own bold beginnings, the lessons they learned, the challenges they faced and the solutions they crafted to shift the course of history along the way.
Hello and welcome.
