Serendipity as a Highly Valuable Skill

 
 

A serendipitous discovery is a frequent starting point of a successful enterprise.

Though most inventions take years to develop, sometimes, all it takes is just an open mind and an accident.

 

 

Sonam Wangmo, Bhutan, award winning writer

It is entrepreneurial serendipity that teaches how great things could be created unintentionally. It gives hope and support to the entrepreneurs that there could be a great discovery.
