The Basics Of Entrepreneurship
According to Jim Clifton, author “The Coming Jobs War”, while innovation was a good thing in the pipeline of job creation, it’s entrepreneurship that creates new customers by energizing the inventions.
One of the topics that have picked up in the country has to do with entrepreneurship. Ghana’s unemployment rate currently stands at 40 percent, 70 percent of those unemployed in the country are between the ages of 15 and 35.Though the government has been called to increase funds for capacity building, support training and development of youth entrepreneurs through entrepreneurial development, little has been done and especially in counties where corruption seems to be top on the agenda for the leaders rather than creating job opportunities.
Romesh Wadhani founder of Symphony Technology Group launched a search for a new crop of entrepreneurs who can create the much-needed jobs in Kenya. The company for the last 18 months has been running a pilot locally to change the tact for creating jobs by tying up with major universities who identify top performing students turning them into renown entrepreneurs. If such programs were replicated in the market then there would be plenty of job creators and the high numbers of unemployment would decrease.
If you want to be an entrepreneur you need to step out of the comfort zone and learn as much as you can and especially in the field that you desire. Take advantage of the devolution system that we have as a country and think of what is missing in your county and work on it.
