What does Cherry Bekeart LLP envision for the future of entrepreneurship? Cost will continue to be less and less of a barrier to entry as emerging technologies allow for service, retail and software companies to start up with less capital investment. Social media will continue to allow entreprenuers to message their brand and grow their networks more quickly than ever. There will be a continued shift towards entrprenuership and self-organized or managed teams working for a common goal. Contracted work will be much more prevalent, though the most critical aspects of business will always be accomplished face to face (though it may be through a video conference rather than a formal meeting).
