BOWEN UNIVERSITY: SECURING THE FUTURE THROUGH ENTREPRENEURSHIP 01
Entrepreneurship is the act of creating a business or businesses while building and scaling it to generate a profit. However, as a basic entrepreneurship definition, it’s a bit limiting. The more modern entrepreneurship definition is also about transforming the world by solving big problems. The leaders of Bowen university knows this and they care so much about Bowenites which is the main reason why they organized a three day workshop with the theme; Securing the Future through Entreprenuership
