2nd Edition: Entrepreneurs
The second edition of The Other Hundred focuses on the world's everyday Entrepreneurs. They are skyscraper painters in India, tech workers turned food hawkers in China, salt farmers in Australia, the owner of a rural internet café in Brazil and many more.
The book offers an alternative to the view that most successful entrepreneurs were trained at elite business schools. Here are people who have never written a formal business plan, hired an investment bank, planned an exit strategy or dreamt of a stock market floatation. Some work for themselves, others employ a few people, still others a few hundred.
The book's 100 stories were chosen from a pool of 10,000 images shot in nearly 150 countries. Also included are half a dozen essays from acclaimed writers the world over - Tash Aw, Ian Johnson, Robyn Bargh, Eliane Brum, David Goldblatt, Tolu Ogunlesi, Yasmine El Rashidi and Huang Wenhai.
The book is published by Oneworld Publications in London and is available from March 2015 in bookstores worldwide.
