Entrepreneurship in the information age #strikedanvil

It's Tuesday again, another #strikedanvil session on enterprise radio! Whoop whoop. As always, it would be an honor to have you listen in and interact with us on @eradiong or by calling, 09090000061, 09090000062. You can listen to last week's show here if you missed it. Thanks again for your support so far!! We love you!

Ever wonder why #Google is king of the world today? (Yea,don't forget they bought me over, hehe.)  The world has evolved from the agricultural age, where farmers ruled to the industrial age where engineers ruled to the current information age where data miners/providers rule. Right now, Information is King...... connect the dots.

Access to information has largely affected the way we do business, entrepreneurs increasingly have to be on top of their game as customers have access to more information now, than ever before. Everyday, digital innovation is changing lives in ways never expected, touching all parts of human existence. Google chairman Eric Schmidt recently described technological advance as “a race between computers and people and the people need to win.”

How does an entrepreneur remain ahead in this time? How can entrepreneurs position themselves to take advantage of this age? The general consensus is that Africans do not read, how true is this? Can an entrepreneur really survive without constantly reading and updating his/herself in this age? Where can you find this information? Is it free, is it paid? Is it timely, accurate and does it have integrity? These are the issues we have to deal with as entrepreneurs. 

Joining us to discuss this tomorrow is Howell Allusi.
