The Chicken & the Egg of Entrepreneurship

The Problem

One team I met from Africa started with a problem they were facing in their own university ecosystem — instant noodles. Now, many of us have faced the budgetary concerns of college life, which may have resulted in questionable nutritional choices, but this trio had a very different experience.

The Solution

On the other hand, I asked a team from the UK what sparked their business idea. They, honestly enough, said they were captivated by the solution.

This got me thinking. Is there a right answer?

In my heart, yes, but in my head…maybe?
