Students stirred up at the Entrepreneurship Round-table Event
3rd and 4th year Entrepreneurship Students from Strathmore School of Management and Commerce (SMC) enjoyed an informative session during the Entrepreneurship Roundtable event held at the University on November 15th 2017.
Students had an opportunity to learn about the complex world of business, at the feet of successful entrepreneurs from diverse sectors of the economy.
The meeting was both educative and inspiring as entrepreneurs shared information drawn from their personal experiences in business. Most entrepreneurs displayed passion for what they do, highlighting opportunities, benefits and challenges that come with being an entrepreneur.
Mr. Justus Mweru – Team Leader Amaris ICT Solution – captivated students when he told how he started his own company as a university student, solely relying on his computer to generate business. He encouraged students to start out early and utilize the little resources they have, which could generate successful business outcomes.
On another front, entrepreneurs stressed the lack of talent in the job market as a big challenge they currently face. They argued that potential industrialists are not patient enough to see their businesses grow, they are driven by money as a motivating factor.
The entrepreneurs maintained that success in businesses only comes as a result of hard work, discipline and resilience, urging students to embrace these attributes if they want to excel in the field.
The entrepreneurs concluded that their greatest benefit is drawn from the fulfillment enjoyed that may be hard to get while in employment.
