With global and national supply chain disruption, we need to decide how best to progress as entrepreneurs and supporters of micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs). Acting locally is no longer an option, but rather it is the foundation of our new normal. In harnessing regional support, however, we need to center our entrepreneurial activities socially. Socially and humanely-focused entrepreneurship is our only option to continue doing the necessary work to create a flourishing new normal post-COVID-19.
