HYDERABAD: Speakers, in a seminar on ‘the social and psychological aspects of entrepreneurship’, have called upon the youth to take the path of entrepreneurship as a career option, observing that the change in time has also brought drastic changes in the way business is conducted.
The seminar was organised on Friday at the senate hall of Vice Chancellor’s Secretariat University of Sindh, Jamshoro. They said that the youth should not only get abreast of such changes, but should also depart from traditional outlook of joint government sector employment and should rather actively consider trying hands at entrepreneurship.
“Wealth as a prerequisite for small ventures is no longer an obligation,” they said, adding that one can start a modest trade just by the help of a single laptop via exercising online options; as is the popular practice nowadays with millions of people across the globe.
University of Sindh Vice Chancellor Fateh Muhammad Burfat, who presided over the seminar, said that intelligence; vibrant imagination, smartness and competence had effectively substituted possession of wealth and assets as a means of initiating trade.
Pro-Vice Chancellor Sindh University Campus Dadu Prof. Dr. Anwar Ali Shah G. Syed thanked all national and international scholars for their passionate participation and said that the purpose of the seminar was to orient and stimulate youth to adopt private enterprises.
German Scholar Frederic Christian Bolhmer said one deed done earnestly was far better than wasteful whirlpool of stray thoughts emanating from nothing and leading nowhere. He advised the youth to try their luck in emerging fields of opportunity like coal-mining, CPEC projects and solar energy ventures.
