Crash course on Entrepreneurship this weekend
Wanna be an entrepreneur? Or are you already running your own business but facing challenges that you don’t know how to tackle? Do you have a boring job or a boss that drives you insane? Want to ditch all that and start your own venture?
Well then you have come to the right place. The Master – Jawwad Ahmed Farid – is running a two-day crash course on Entrepreneurship this weekend (May 2 and 3) in Karachi. Jawwad knows what it is like to come face to face with failure; he knows the pains of entrepreneurship and the fruits of success; he has learnt the hard way and wants to make it easier for others.
Jawwad Farid is the Chief Executive and Actuary at Alchemy Technologies Pvt. Ltd. He is a Fellow Society of Actuaries, an MBA from Columbia Business School (New York City) and a computer science graduate (FAST ICS). He is also the author of a book on New Venture failures and teaches Entrepreneurship at SP Jain University in Dubai and Singapore.
The Workshop Facilitator promises :
By the end of this course you will be very comfortable with:
a) Understanding what creates a viable and sustainable business franchise
b) How to analyze the idea behind a new venture & assess its investment potential
c) Creating and presenting an executive summary from scratch
The course focuses on five key elements that one needs to understand to successfully run a new business
a) Strategic Thought
b) Product Development
The course has a very heavy analysis and reading load and is not intended for the light hearted. Its audience is individuals who are serious about striking out on their own. Course grade will be determined by the quality of a case write up, class participation, a product development exercise, a functional and viable executive summary and its presentation to an audience of judges and peers.
