Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation - Avoiding a lost generation June 2013 - EY - Global

Young entrepreneurs pinpoint five imperatives to help spur jobs and avoid an entire lost generation.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Entrepreneurship & Innovation- "3. Create a culture of risk-taking

If you can roughly estimate the time you’ll need to spend, charge a lump-sum.
