New Book Argues that Entrepreneurship is Essential to Flourishing Communities



My friend Chris Horst is becoming a prolific writer with the publication of his newest book, "Entrepreneurship for Human Flourishing," co-authored with Peter Greer.

This compact book provides an extremely powerful argument that business entrepreneurship enables human flourishing for the poor far better than charity. The book shares a mix of stories from entrepreneurs around the world making the case that business development creates opportunities for better lives.

I must admit I am a bit biased because the book focuses a few pages on our newest Belay Enterprises' project, Purple Door Coffee, lead by Madison Chandler and Mark Smesrud. It's fun to see their hard work and great results for homeless young adults get highlighted. Overall this book is perfect for individuals exploring entrepreneurship as a way to create opportunity for the disadvantaged.
