Elzine Mushambi; Impact Tank CEO; “I can see that this is a group of committed people.”
Twenty participants started their journey with the Building Bosses programme in Swakopmund.
Impact Tank Namibia CEO Elzine Mushambi joined them and shared words of encouragement with the group.
“Building Bosses is an entrepreneurship incubator with the aim of building commercially viable businesses. What we hope to see is solid, strong and robust businesses come out of this,” she said.
Mushambi encourages the establishment of not just more outlandish and unique businesses but also businesses that cater to ordinary needs.
She is overjoyed at the new beginning this group is embarking on.
“It feels fantastic to be here. I can see that this is a group of committed people,” she said.
Guest speaker and entrepreneur Brett Stickels encouraged the group to grab every opportunity by its horns.
“What I hope you learn is that you don’t have to wait for opportunity,” he said.
Stickels also encouraged participants to keep faith when their entrepreneurship journeys become tough.
“There are some days where I think this is the best decision I ever made for myself, and then there are days when I think this is the hardest journey I have ever undertaken. You are going to see your friends ahead of you at times, but keep the faith. You’re simply on a different journey,” he said.
