Generally, I often suggest our students to consider
few -criteria- when selecting an entrepreneur for
assignment 1 :
• Should be current (not retired, still
running/controlling the business)
• Should be an entrepreneur (he/she founded
the business(es) himself/herself or with the
team, not just a manager who is hired to run
the business)
• From the specified list of 4 countries
• Have some good/insightful/inspiring stories to
• Information availability (as this assignment
relies on secondary data)
• Possibility to apply relevant (entrepreneurship)
If your chosen entrepreneur can somehow
balancedly addressed those criteria, then I think it
might be a good choice.
