From the Inside Flap:

It's the business story of the decade: all around the world, young people wired with unprecedented access to networks and information technologies are poised to transform the global knowledge economy from the bottom up. Armed with new ideas, new ways to engage customers, new solutions to age-old problems, and new organizational models, businesses in youthful emerging markets like India, South Africa, Brazil, the Philippines, Nigeria, Mexico, Indonesia, Colombia, and Vietnam are changing their futures—and ours.

Intelligent, timely, and compelling, Young World Rising by Rob Salkowitz—author of Generation Blend and coauthor of Listening to the Future—spells out how your organization can engage with these young entrepreneurs in a variety of ways to create new market opportunities and drive sustainable growth in the wake of the global recession.

Young World Rising offers a close-up look at the emergence of a new ethos of entrepreneurship fueled by the spread of network connectivity and the titanic ambitions of a generation of young people more than 4 billion strong. It explores how the Net Generation, global in scope and marinated in digital technology, is blending social and commercial goals, reinventing organizations, and making ingenious use of networks and mobility to build an equitable economy for the twenty-first century.

How can your business engage with new partners in new markets? How can you tap into the opportunities of Young World innovation and growth? How can Young World talent bolster the aging workforces of Europe and North America? What are the opportunities for cooperation—and competition—as Young World businesses rise to the fore? Young World Rising challenges today's organizations to keep pace with the global flood of innovation.

Rich with research and studies, this book gives voice to the rising entrepreneurs around the world, exploring the similarities and differences in the attitudes of the Net Generation in developed and emerging countries. If you're curious about where the future of work is headed, you need look no further than Young World Rising.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for YOUNG WORLD RISING

"Salkowitz identifies an exciting new trend in global business and introduces us to a fresh young cast of entrepreneurs whose ideas are literally changing the world. Young World Rising shakes up conventional notions of demographics, globalization, and innovation in a vision that combines hope and challenge. It's a wake-up call for the old guard, a how-to manual for forward-thinking organizations, and a call to arms for the next generation of talent."
Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

"Great stories of the ways that collaborative approaches are solving old problems and creating new opportunities in the parts of the world that are overdue for some good news."
Don Tapscott, author of Grown Up Digital and coauthor of Wikinomics

"Young World Rising combines insightful analysis and great stories that challenge old stereotypes and inspire new approaches for businesses, governments, international organizations, and NGOs. It makes a powerful case for a twenty-first century model that places entrepreneurship and innovation clearly at the center and will be a valuable guide for both policymakers and business leaders."
Ambassador Albert Ramdin, Assistant Secretary General, Organization of American States
