How can Entrepreneurship in a region of Conflict, limited Connectivity, and Conservation concern (EC3) help people and protect the environment? Leslie Ruyle is testing this idea in Beni, North Kivu close to the border of Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This location provides an excellent example of Entrepreneurship in the 3C context. Virunga is a World Heritage Site (Conservation), the electricity comes primarily from generators and there are no paved roads in the province (Connectivity), and the region has been in conflict for over 20 years (Conflict).
