Out of the country out of the box: transforming the world. | Gour Saraff | TEDxEAEBusinessSchool
Anorexia: Last dance with my girlfriend | Katerina Visseri | TEDxMaviliSquareSalon
The developing world is short of businesses and entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs from Spain, Europe and the developed world can make an impact where they can start successful businesses for themselves in Asia, Africa and Latin America. They can foment local economies through job creation, incremental income and an expandable tax base. It is a ground breaking opportunity for the entrepreneur to apply the knowledge and skill sets acquired in the developed world towards creating enterprises that can be developed on a boot strap budget and scaled up to make profits for all stakeholders.
Businesses could be low tech based on what the local economy lacks which may exist in the developed world. Gour Saraff has over twenty years of entrepreneurial experience establishing businesses in different countries and considers himself a global entrepreneur. After leaving his corporate position he went to Russia and Ukraine where he founded a modern meat production facility using domestically sourced raw materials. The pioneering effort provided the spark for jump starting the packaged meat production industry in Ukraine. After learning some hard and life-threatening lessons of entrepreneurship in the developing world he moved on to create businesses in other countries. The Ted talk is about any person from anywhere becoming a global entrepreneur that may then go on to serve as a catalyst for growth in the developing world. Mr. Saraff is a professor of international business and has an MBA from NYU Stern School of business. He speaks several languages largely as a result of his business experiences in different countries. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
