"Born Global, Grow Global" What to Learn from Honda. A Japanese Mechanic's Entrepreneurial Dream of Reaching a Global Market.
On Tuesday, October 11, 2011 the Dublin International Business Assistance Center (DIBAC) located at the Dubin Entrepreneurial Center (DEC) in Dublin, Ohio hosted a presentation by Mr. Toshikata Amino, Retired Executive VP of Honda of America Manufacturing. Mr. Amino received an Honorary Doctorate from Franklin University and is currently Executive-in-Residence at the Fisher College of Business, Ohio State University.
Mr. Amino's presentation inspires the dreams of entrepreneurs and local business community leaders with his story of Mr. Soichiro Honda, Founder, Honda Motor Company, and how he started his small business with global ambitions and grew it to an international company.
For entrepreneurs who are just starting out, or thinking of building a small business, his speech provides insights into the importance and benefits each of us receive when challenging ourselves to do more than what we imagine.
