Entrepreneurship: A Conversation with Elmira Bayrasli

April 26, 2016

Blog posts represent the views of CFR fellows and staff and not those of CFR, which takes no institutional positions.

What is an entrepreneur? How do entrepreneurs in other countries, such as Turkey, Nigeria, Pakistan, Mexico, India, Russia, and China, differ from those in the United States? To what extent is entrepreneurship innate within the individual, or can be cultivated by the conditions, including governance or society, in which they grow up?

I discuss these questions with Elmira Bayrasli, author of From the Other Side of the World: Extraordinary Entrepreneurs (PublicAffairs, 2015) and cofounder of Foreign Policy Interrupted. You can follow her on Twitter @endeavoringE.
