What if instead of sending drones, the US State Department sent a planeload of children's book authors like me to developing countries and/or rural American counties? We could help local entrepreneurs learn how to tell their business ideas clearly and simply, like a children's book. A week or two later, a planeload of American investors would arrive to hear these startup stories. Maybe they'd invest. Maybe they wouldn't. But after spending time with more than 200 entrepreneurs in Phnom Penh on Friday night (yes, Friday night!), I know who I'm betting on.
