Mara Mentor is a platform that connects ambitious African entrepreneurs with experienced business leaders. I recently registered on the platform with the singular aim to share knowledge and add value. The except below is from a post I wrote and was published on Mara Mentor.
“Entrepreneurship is more celebrated, studied, and desirable than ever. Business school students flock to courses on entrepreneurship. Policymakers pin their hopes for job creation and economic growth on start-ups rather than on the once-preeminent corporate giants.” – Amar Bhide
You would agree with me that the above words are still very profound now even after over two decades old. We are in the age of the entrepreneur! And nothing else seems to matter, everyone just wants to be an entrepreneur. Every tom, dick and harry is starting a ‘start-up’ and one continues to wonder, is this really the best way out? Is this trend worth following? What must I do to be an entrepreneur?
