How to foster growth of entrepreneurship, by expert



The Ashoka Anglophone West Africa Director, Josphine Nzerem has urged Nigerian leaders to provide the necessary platform for entrepreneurship to thrive.

Speaking during a story telling workshop for entrepreneurs in Lagos recently, Nzerem noted that the imperativeness of adequate infrastructure for entrepreneurs cannot be over emphasized.

According to her “I will say that the government has great ideas, especially for agroprenuers. It is one thing to say you are empowering
young people and you don’t give them the tools to be empowered. I think government should concentrate on giving young people necessary tools to be empowered and empower others.

Specifically, she noted that for some young people,’ all they need is a good mentor, connected to resources, like some in farming maybe they need land, seeds, like those in the ICT, they may need computers. Housing is very expensive, some of them may need office space where there is internet connection, power is another important infrastructure.

Speaking on the story telling programme, he said ‘Today is International Youth Day and we decided to have this programme which is story telling workshop, bringing young people together to learn how to package their stories because we discover that the youths may have good
ideas but may not know how to put the stories together.

The way you organize your story will help you in selling it to others.
