The need to support entrepreneurs in the development of a nation’s economy cannot be over-emphasized. However, one must be circumspect in choosing the interventions needed to develop these entrepreneurs so as to achieve maximum impact. In today’s business world, focusing developmental initiatives such as entrepreneurship development programs including mentoring on the youth is a means of investing in the future business leaders of the country. Without doubt, the establishment of more viable and successful businesses is a way out of the high unemployment rates which quite a number of countries experience. These businesses will employ others, contribute to the reduction of poverty and improve the economy generally.
One sure way of investing in the future of the economy is MENTORING the youth to create and manage businesses. It is a way of sending them forth into the business world, much better equipped to ride the waves and challenges in their quest for success. In all meaningful economies around the World, developmental initiatives such as entrepreneurship development programs including mentoring are focused on the youth. This is a means of investing in the future business leaders thus creating a possible way out of the lingering unemployment challenges facing these countries.
