Did you ever think of being an Entrepreneur? who is considered as the driving force of every nation’s economy? and are often viewed as the building block? and a solution to stabilize the nation’s economy towards development?
Entrepreneurs are often a unique group of people. They always think and act differently. They always think about new ideas to change societies. They always find a way to do work differently. They are risk-takers and bear more risk to enjoy most of the rewards. They are innovators in terms of sourcing new ideas, goods, or services, process flows because they are confident that their innovation can change the world.
As I said above, they are the driving force towards the progression of economies, they are the spark that ignites the flames of economic development in a country and is often viewed as real contributors to economic development. Do you know? Pakistan is currently stood at 23rd largest in the world in terms of purchasing power parity, and 42nd largest in terms of nominal gross domestic product – source Wikipedia.
Moreover, when fighting with unemployment, entrepreneurship is a solution, entrepreneurship opens new doors to a new venture and business alliances which causes the unemployment ratio to further decreased. Do you know? The current employment to population ratio of Pakistan is 57.4% and the unemployment ratio is 4.10 (FY 2019). Therefore, by employing more people in your organization you can create many jobs in Pakistan. Source: Trading Economics
