Entrepreneurship is undoubtedly a key economic driver. Embracing it has had tremendous impact in many countries, boosting national economies and reducing poverty and deprivation.
That is why encouraging entrepreneurship is a major priority for the United Nations development agenda as well as governments across the globe. Increasing entrepreneurship among groups which are vulnerable or underrepresented especially women and youths is of particular interest.
It is indeed through entrepreneurship anchored on passionate and resilient research that important innovations spin off and enter the marketplace, increasing competition, leading to the creation of new companies directly affecting the economy, and resulting in increased productivity and economic growth.
As is most obvious, the leading economies of today and those of the future are the ones who can harness the power of innovation and their creative entrepreneurs through initiatives such as incubators, hubs and accelerator programmes.
The creation of decent jobs and the ensuing higher quality of life could be achieved through programmes bringing together self-learning and self-empowerment opportunities and placing same in the doorstep of all .
