What is the Future of Work after COV19?

Disruption in industry-leading to accelerated worldwide transformations

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

The Kauffman Foundation recently hosted a forum on “Entrepreneurship Recovery After COV19: Knowledgebase and moving forward in the United States. There were three-panel topics:

PANEL 1: Impact of COVID-19 on entrepreneurship: What Do We Know?

PANEL 2: Priorities, opportunities, and responses

PANEL 3: Recovery in the Heartland

I was invited, and represented, our group of international scholars and practitioners on the second panel. We presented our work on, The Future of Work & Entrepreneurship for the Underserved.” The panel recording, as well as slides, will be forthcoming soon.

Our contribution to the discussion surrounds the unscaling of the global economy to increase the accessibility of the factors of production to entrepreneurs; the demand for continuous learning; and disruption in the worldwide economy from “the Hungry Middle.” We believe the combination of these factors holds the potential to reduce income disparities globally. A summary of the concluding remarks is represented in the slide below:
