People, processes and tools have been created to think beyond the constrictive limitations that we have come to rely on in western cities. The course explores west and east African business practices as inspiration for a rapidly changing global ecosystem. In the wake of social and political unrest we examine these practices in order to inform research and find solutions for businesses at the local level. Students working in groups will be assigned 1 of 5 minority owned businesses that have struggled to maintain or grow in today’s unpredictable climate.
