Technopreneur – Bill Gates! Microsoft! Steve Jobs! Apple! Sergey Brin and Larry Page! Google! Count the names of entrepreneurs who started Oracle! YouTube! Facebook!
Wonder what they are? Then you are not ready to be a technoprenuer! Add your name in queue.
If you have decided to add your name in the queue, I am sure, you have what it takes to be a technoprenuer.
A technoprenuer is an entrepreneur who is technology savvy, creative, innovative, dynamic, dares to be different and take the unexplored path, and very passionate about their work. They take challenges and strive to lead their life with greater success. They do’t fear to fail. They take failure as a learning experience, a stimulator to look things differently and stride for next challenge. Technoprenuers continuously go through an organic process of continual improvement and always try to redefine the dynamic digital economy.
Technology and entrepreneurial skills are driving many economies to prosperity. The most famous of them all is, Bill Gates, who makes Microsoft a household name all over the world. Steve Jobs – well known for his innovations. iPod – most carried gadget by young population. Look at the success of Google – brain child of Sergey Brin and Larry Page. Who do’t know Google?
Technopreneurship is not a product but a process of synthesis in engineering the future of a person, an organization, a nation and the world. In a world where digital transformation is the norm, knowledge based, strategic directions or decision-making processes will be demanding and complex. This requires tertiary level and professional development programs and training to produce strategic thinkers who will have the skills to succeed in a dynamically changing global environment. Traditional educational programs, however, lack the methodology to transform today’s students into creative, innovative, visionary global leaders who understand the importance of technopreneurship.
