What do I know? Lessons on Design Thinking, Inclusion, and More from Micro-Entrepreneurs in the Developing World

Wednesday, November 18 @ 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm • Organized By Unbound
Online Event


Whether we’re startups or supporters, we all want to build a community where everyone can thrive. But how do our assumptions hold us back? This workshop shares how families overcoming extreme poverty taught me about design thinking, entrepreneurship, and the power of human potential. We’ll learn from the wisdom of people who are normally left out of the conversation. They have hard-won insight on what makes for a successful entrepreneur and how best to apply scarce resources. Their results may help founders, investors, program administrators, and even everyday families here in Kansas City.
