Entrepreneurship practices are growing at an enormous rate on all levels, specifically speaking on an international level. Statistics verify that “2016’s startup success rate was recorded at its highest to date, when comparing a year-to-year global startup success rate for organizations” (Admin, 2017). This all have been made possible, because of the consistent rising of opportunities due to the endless opportunities to innovate, as well as, the growing development of modern digital technology. Gupta writes in an article in the Entrepreneur India, “With modern digital technology establishing constant innovation and change, a process had begun of exploiting and developing new technology to gain more power and assist in development across various sectors, industrial or otherwise” (2016). This entrepreneurship trend will forever continue, due to the following primary reasons: “Entrepreneurial Diversity, the Decreasing Costs of Startups and the Emphasis on Social Media” (admin, 2017).

“The Kauffman Foundation states more than 40% of new entrepreneurs are of minority races” (admin, 2017). With technology advancement, including the digital technology previously mentioned, access to prior unknown opportunities were available to other countries, potentially raising the “value of success”. Another primary reason that lead people into becoming entrepreneurs is the decreasing cost of startups. With the easy access resources, such as “the development and accessibility of cloud computing services, as well as the ease and affordability of creating a website.” And thirdly is social media. “More than 80% of all businesses around the world use various social media platforms to exchange information between users”. Social media is an effortless way to build and maintain networks anywhere in the world. Social Media gives a competitive advantage to companies that decide to make use of it verses the companies that do not. 

But even with these three (3) primary reasons that leads people to invest in the practices of entrepreneurship, it ultimately narrows down to the financial opportunity and resources in today’s world. Decreasing Costs of Startups is a major factor when it comes to increasing the value of global success with a startup business.
