Learning by DOING!

A group of our third year students accompanied by our senior trainer/ chief academic Mr. Elibahati travelled to Mwanza, Tanzania for 5 day assignment in an OKoa Mtaa project hosted by S.U.A which stands for Save Underground Artists.

The workshop brings together the professional in the industry and the underground artist to debate, practice, discuss and share knowledge in the art and culture in relations to other society’s issues.

So what Entrepreneurship?
Entrepreneurship according to Harvard Business School:
“Entrepreneurship is the pursuit of opportunity beyond resources controlled”

Pursuit: implies focus, a short window of opportunity, entrepreneurs have a sense of urgency that is seldom seen in established companies.

Opportunity: implies an offering that is new, it may entail: 1) pioneering a truly innovative product; 2) devising a new business model; 3) creating a better or cheaper version; 4) targeting an existing product to new sets of customers.

Beyond resources: implies resource constraints. Must mobilize more resources than they control personally.
