Entrepreneurs tipped on lucrative initiatives

MARGARET SAMULELA, Lusaka
YOUNG entrepreneurs have embarked on an initiative to engage successful businesspersons in the country to get tips on how best they can execute their ideas into reality.
The first to engage with the entrepreneurs was Pangaea Securities chief executive officer Ceaser Siwale.
Mr Siwale urged the entrepreneurs to have courage to explore their ideas and present them before successful individuals or organisations that can help materialise them.
“Education in itself is not the answer to the development of this country, but the ability of free thinking and determination to work and exploring ideas can help you entrepreneurs to succeed,” Mr Siwale said  at the inaugural Startup GRIND programme in Lusaka.
He urged young entrepreneurs to use local and original content in their business plans as this was most likely to impress more experienced promoters.
At the same function, Startup GRIND director Sandras Phiri said the interactions will take place once a month.
“During these interactions, entrepreneurs will be able to run their project proposals or ideas before our guests as we believe collaboration is key to the success of entrepreneurship,” he said.
Startup GRIND has launched a platform where young entrepreneurs will interact with successful businesspersons and organisations on how best to establish lucrative businesses.
He said the sessions will also serve as a networking forum for entrepreneurs to exchange ideas and grow their customer base.
