The Coronavirus Crisis: A Catalyst for Entrepreneurship

Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationCommunication

Abstract

Throughout human history, crises have been pivotal in developing our societies. Pandemics have helped advance health-care systems, wars have fuelled technological innovations and the global financial crisis helped advance tech companies like Uber and Airbnb. The present coronavirus pandemic will arguably not be an exception; entrepreneurs can be expected to rise to the challenge.
Businesses play a key role both in helping society get through an economic crisis and in creating innovations that shape society after a crisis. So one key question is: how will the ongoing crisis influence future society?
While it’s hard to predict the future, we can develop an understanding of what is ahead by analyzing current trends.
