Entrepreneurship, Innovation Can Help Solve Global Health Challenges

“I’ve always believed that bringing together the world’s brightest minds to help solve the significant and complex crises we face as a global society is the best way to effect change in the world and that is how I envision re-imagining the future of Global Health,” entrepreneur Naveen Jain, founder of World Innovation Institute, Moon Express, inome, and InfoSpace, writes in a Forbes opinion piece. He says he will address this issue in a talk in San Francisco at TEDxSF, which “will explore crucial questions addressing the cutting-edge intersection of technology, medicine, scientific research, and industry at UCSF on November 10, 2012.”

“Ultimately, change that impacts seven billion people comes from using innovation and entrepreneurship to stay flexible and adaptable in an ever-changing world,” Jain writes, adding, “I believe that entrepreneurs play an unmatched role and the accelerating pace of innovation is transforming the face of global challenges.” He concludes, “There is not a problem that’s large enough that innovation and entrepreneurship can’t solve” (10/25).
