Entrepreneurs Make the Best of Financial Crisis... and Make a Difference

While most of the world is concerned about funding and business, many entrepreneurs are not letting the crisis impede their motivation. Overlooking the broken economy, many are working to improve global development and health. For example, Edward E. Bjurstrom and Edward G. Maliski, two former biotechnology executives are putting in their own money to help create drugs to combat diseases in developing countries, including HIV, AIDS, hepatitis C, and malaria. Says Mr. Bjurstrom: “I wanted to do something meaningful to address the needs of developing countries [providing access to advanced medicines].”
