Description

ENTREPRENEUR KNOWLEDGE NETWORK SESSIONS

Since the inception of the sessions we first started to dialogue the anatomy of an entrepreneur to get a better understanding of “What is an Entrepreneur” and found that the word “entrepreneur” has different definitions and view points,We established that entrepreneurs are not the same because they possess different entrepreneurial DNA but share common entrepreneurial characteristics.

The aim of the Entrepreneurship Knowledge Network Sessions is to create an entrepreneurship culture through a continuous consistent event helping to set a favourable supportive environment were emerging/aspiring entrepreneurs and established entrepreneurs have a platform to network and dialogue the most contentious issues and challenges involving entrepreneurs today.The sessions also serve as business development catalyst where business knowledge and business information is shared.

TOPIC FOR SESSION:

"The Paradox of Growth"

KEY REASONS WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO FOCUS ON ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT

  • It contributes directly to job creation and growth: increasingly new and small firms are the major providers of new jobs; entrepreneurship can foster social and economic cohesion in underdeveloped regions; entrepreneurship can stimulate economic activity and integrate unemployed or disadvantaged people into work, etc.

  • It is crucial to competitiveness: it results in increased efficiency and innovation in firms in terms of organization, processes, products, services or markets; it enhances the competitiveness of an economy as a whole and thus offers consumers greater choice and lower price.

  • It unlocks personal potential: in addition to material motivations such as money and status, people become entrepreneurs as a means to self-fulfilment such as freedom, independence and the challenge.

  • It is in society’s interest: entrepreneurs are the key drivers of the market economy and their achievements provide societies with wealth, jobs and diversity of choice for consumers.

  • It is associated with certain behaviour patterns, such as the ability to take risks.
