29 minutes
First broadcast:

We look at four stories of business struggle and success from the World Entrepreneur of the Year Awards in Monte Carlo. Peter Day speaks to New Zealand serial entrepreneur Craig Heatley, who got his start with a mini-golf course and ended up in charge of a media powerhouse. Sipho Nkosi is a mining entrepreneur in South Africa. As a poor, black man he tells his story of growing up in a society still divided by race, and how he climbed his industry to become chief executive of mining company Exxaro.

And another African entrepreneur, Emmanuel Katongole, has big plans to manufacture pharmaceuticals in Uganda with his company, Quality Chemicals. Finally at the awards, sponsored by the global financial services firm Ernst and Young, Peter talks to Guenter Edlinger of Guger Technologies about how cutting edge brain science lead to his venture in the business world.
