Entrepreneurship involves designing, managing, and implementing decisions that allow us to take advantage of opportunities to meet the unfulfilled needs, and those that are created, of people in a world that is advancing by leaps and bounds.
traditionally, Entrepreneurship has been linked as an act of private and private. On the other hand, the practice of public policy has been an important task that is generally attributed to governments as managers of common resources.
however, The globalized world in an age of hyper-connectivity requires us to turn to see the transformation of the public sphere from the perspective of leading businesses.
General problems, who is responsible?
First of all, I think it is important to clarify this Attention to public problems is not limited to governments.
Managing and enjoying shared resources such as water, the environment, parks and roads, as well as building social justice, pluralistic democracies, and economic development, to name a few, are public affairs, that is, they concern all of us.
When we talk about undertaking publicly, we are talking about creation and innovation in exercising our rights and enjoying our guarantees in our societies.
However, we have become accustomed to the fact that the solution of public problems is only in the hands of governments and their administrations.
If there is pollution, let the government take care of it; If there is insecurity, let the government take care of it; if there is an inequality; Let the government take care of him; And so we can continue the list.
Political science is responsible for the study of theory and the exercise of power. If we understand power as the ability that we have as human beings to achieve the results we want, then it is clear that an entrepreneur is someone with power.
what It may not be entirely clear where the line is drawn between the practice of entrepreneurship from the public and that of the private sector.
Frankly, I don’t think so. The misconception that there is a sharp division between the public and the private comes from a perception in which power is associated with a scarce resource that is hoarded and concentrated in the hands of a few.
Under this scheme, entrepreneurship is misunderstood as a private company that joins competition in order to unite resources, making it impossible to think of it as a proposed solution to public problems.
What is general entrepreneurship?
from School of Government and Public Transformation We imagine Entrepreneurship is seen as the collective pursuit of shared opportunities beyond controlled resources. Those who choose public entrepreneurship start from self-management, focus on decision-making and build workable solutions out of collaboration to address public problems.
The work of the undertaking to change the public is not limited to government bodies and their departments.
The general transformation of entrepreneurship is managed together with private companies and organized civil society to present innovative ideas that, when put into practice, allow to address social problems and develop their solutions..
The power born of the public institution, i.e. the ability to achieve desired public goals, is not a controlled resource to be contested, it is a stream to be transmitted and distributed among all, i.e. it is truly democratic. It is underpinned by radical transparency and accountability.
Entrepreneurship as an act of public policy is the most democratic way we have to transform our societies and provide solutions to their most pressing problems. (Rene Rosado Gonzalez, Director, Bachelor’s Degree Program in Government and Public Transformation, CDMX District)
