“Entrepreneurialism is essentially a belief system: you must believe in something that is bigger than yourself”. A strong message for young entrepreneurs and the entire startup ecosystem. Mårten Mickos has been the CEO of MySQL AB, a relatively small European company that he guided to an exit worth one billion, when in 2008 the company was sold to Sun Microsystems. Not a surprise if the talk he gave for the Stanford University‘s Entrepreneurship Corner in Nov. 2011 was titled exactly in this way: Believe in Something Bigger Than Yourself.

#Bangladesh suffers from a severe shortage of medical facilities. Most doctors live and work in the cities, so rural folk must travel long distances for treatment.

One rickshaw driver, who saved for 30 years on $6 per day, founded a small hospital in the remote village of Tanhashadia. His efforts have made him a national celebrity and his clinic now treats 300 patients each day.
Nicolas Haque reports from Tanhashadia, Bangladesh: http://youtu.be/cELeBNWQeJs
