Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
In this podcast Boyan Jovanovic, the winner of the Global Award for Entrepreneurship Research 2019, reveals what he will do with the prize money and that he every year goes back to his birth country Serbia to teach a masters class in finance. He speaks about entrepreneurhip in Sweden and that the welfare state provides a safety net for risk takers. “This will encourage risk taking among those with access to funds”, he remarks. Adding that – in a Swedish context – “to develop some ideas you need creativity and experience and much more, and existing companies may have that. So maybe it is not such a bad thing that when an idea has been developed the business is sold.”
