    Unit 4 Assignment Preparation

    excited person leaping into a new life!

    With all of your new knowledge and insights well in hand from Units 1-3, you are ready to start thinking creatively and innovatively about your own possible entrepreneurial opportunities!

    The world is full of challenging problems, and what’s amazing is you can making a living through taking these challenges on and effectively solving them. As a reminder, there are many ways to think creatively and innovatively about how to solve problems. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to watch the video and review the infographic below on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and choose three to dig into to brainstorm the “problems” (i.e. things that could be better) in the world associated with your SDGs of choice. These could be big or small, clear or fuzzy, but think about what the root causes leading to global challenges the SDGs of your choosing are intending to address.

    What are the SDGs? Check out this Video:

    A YouTube element has been excluded from this version of the text. You can view it online here:


    Also have a look at this nifty infographic (, 2015) that showcases all 17:

    UN SDGs listed as a poster

    Take some time to research the three SDGs that excite you the most, and speak to you as areas that need to improve in the world as soon as possible. The three you choose will be different from the three other people chose, and that’s a great thing. If we all chose the same areas of passion, we would miss out on solving all sorts of challenges!

    Research online sources to understand the root causes of the problems the three SDGs are trying to address. What have you found to be the root causes? Why are these so hard to fix? What can be done now and what will take time?

    In the next module, you will develop your entrepreneurial plan.
