Welcome to the Entrepreneurs Circle
Entrepreneurship is considered the backbone and lifeblood of any economy. Entrepreneurs have passion, vigour and the stamina to drive their ideas to create flourishing businesses that benefit entire communities. The fearless entrepreneur takes substantial risks for the sake of creating a new idea. Entrepreneurs provide hope and resilience against global challenges like COVID-19.
The Entrepreneurs Circle provides a networking platform for the practitioners, budding entrepreneurs, researchers, students and communities to understand the journey of an entrepreneur. In each inspiring discussion, you will hear a unique story of an entrepreneur – their trials and tribulations of their triumphant journey.
