Dr. Shaukat Brah, Dean KSBL, while sharing his views as a panellist on the discussion about “Fostering Entrepreneurial Mindsets through Education & Learning” at the Entrepreneurship Conference held in Karachi on Wednesday, November 14, 2012, said “Entrepreneurship is the first option”. He was responding to the comments made by another panellist who said “9 – 5 job option is getting limited and entrepreneurship is a second option”. Dr. Brah mentioned that being in the relevant environment makes a lot of difference in developing the right mindset. He said “I believe in the motivation factors and the hygiene factors. The motivation has to come from within the students and the hygiene factors including laying down the foundation, knowledge, training, mentorship, etc, can be provided by the school. This will create the relevant environment to develop the entrepreneurial mindset which will produce successful entrepreneurs.”
