The tectonic forces shaping the businesses of the future

The tectonic forces shaping the businesses of the future

A transformational movement is challenging the view that businesses exist primarily to maximize shareholder value. A growing number of businesses are keen to play a larger role in society, not simply by acting “responsibly,” but also by becoming a true “force for good.” They are harnessing the power of markets, entrepreneurship, and investment capital to tackle complex social problems in areas such as crime, education, health care, and clean energy.

No skills = no jobs: Building the skillsets of unemployed youth in the Caribbean

More than one-quarter of the world’s 7.3 billion people are between the ages of 10 and 24, according to a recent UN Population Fund Report.

¿Las mujeres salen perdiendo cuando se trata de financiamiento de sus empresas?

En el mundo, poco a poco se va aceptando la idea de que incorporar a las mujeres en los negocios y en cargos directivos resulta en equipos más creativos y complementarios. Se considera que la visión de ellas ayuda a las empresas a llegar más lejos, y el hacerlas partícipes en el mundo laboral genera que las empresas estén mejor administradas y sean más exitosas, dando como resultado el llamado “dividendo de género”.

Beyond the land of the unicorns

When most people hear the word “unicorn,” images of a majestic white horse with a glistening, magical horn spring to mind. However, in business jargon, unicorns refer to privately held startups with market valuations of more than $1 billion—think Uber, Snapchat, and Airbnb—which operate across a range of sectors and are united in using technology as the basis of their business model.
