According to Wikipedia, Entrepreneurship is defined as the capacity and willingness to develop, organize and manage a business venture along with any of its risks in order to make a profit.
Entrepreneurship should be a crucial aspect everybody needs to know. So far the labour market is filled with a lot of competitions and many challenges, it is better for all and sundry to be oriented on entrepreneurship.
There are many graduates which every higher institution of learning are producing every year, having little hope or none on how to survive. It is so bad for students that really suffered while on campus are out of school to have nothing tangible to do in order to live a good life. The labour market is mostly favoured by those that have connections to a great place.
Students should not be oriented on coming to school for the sake of grade point alone. Schooling is more than grade point, it is about getting an education in all areas of life, and not on academics alone. There are many reasons which call for the need to encourage entrepreneurship amongst student, but only a few will be discussed below.
As stated earlier, we live in a very competitive and challenging world, in which only the strongest can survive. Through entrepreneurship, the student can be strong emotionally, financially etc, and depend less on others, because they will have the grace to control their finance and stop searching for white-collar jobs which is not always available. Thus reducing the rate of unemployment in our community.
An adage says an idle hand is a devil workshop, which is obviously true. So far most crime being committed is from graduated youth having nothing reasonable to do with their time but a crime. If they had been exposed to entrepreneurship and empowered when they were still in school, they might not have had time to think of crime not to talk of having time to commit it, because they will be so busy minding their own business. It will be so good if students are exposed to entrepreneurship to make them less idle, by this crime rate can be reduced.
Drop by drop makes the ocean as being said by some people. Many great companies started as infants before they become so big and popular. Facebook was started by a student, likewise Microsoft and many other companies. Both turned to great leading companies with respect with time. So if entrepreneurship is encouraged amongst students, many top leading companies will surely rise, which will help the economy of a Nation.
Finally, entrepreneurship can help students to develop their God giving talent. There are so many talented students. Most students are not encouraged, which made them let go of what is given to them(talents). If some certain amount of money is donated to talented people, and they are educated on how to turn their talent to the ocean of wealth, it will be of great help for them to become a better person, and they will be of a great benefit to the world with their talent(s).
