BILL GATES has absolutely influnced me says MARK ZUCKERBERG

Image
When Microsoft founder Bill Gates took his software company public in 1986 as a 30-year-old — making him a millionaire and one of the richest men in the country — Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was just a toddler. Gates continued to run Microsoft, at one point the largest company in the world, until he stepped down as CEO in 2000. During those years, a young Zuckerberg, who began hacking together chat networks as a pre-teen, was watching. Zuckerberg says seeing Gates succeed as a technology entrepreneur served as a powerful example for him. "When I was growing up, Bill Gates was my hero," Zuckerberg said in 2013. "I think he is one of the greatest visionaries that our industry has ever had." The biggest lesson Zuckerberg, now 34, took away from watching Gates, 62, was the power of focus. "Growing up, I admired how Microsoft was mission-focused," Zuckerberg explained in a recent interview with Recode's Kara Swisher. "It was a company that had a …

IBM BANGIS RELEASES CHANGE

Image
IBM Bangis is back with yet another exciting project called change, Change is his latest installment in his collection of spoken word/motivational videos. The video revolves around the subject matter of CHANGE. How people want change but don't want to change. People are very much averse to change.The irony is everybody want the change but nobody is willing to make a change because no one wants to leave their comfort zone.


To make change happen, one has to work, one has to plan, execute and it will require time & effort which offcourse is not everybody's priority. The prime factor which influence change includes the person's courage, no control on future, more work,threat and may be everything may become failure in the middle. And because of uncertainty involved it becomes general tendency to avoid change. It also involves a psychological part of human behaviour. Change wakes us to consciousness, something difficult, something out of daily routine, looking into the futur…

Six Tips To Encourage Kids To Become The Entrepreneurs Of The Future

Image
Walking into an airport, or a mall, or a restaurant, it isn’t odd to see young children playing with some sort of electronic devices, whether it’s an iPad or a cell phone, or watching something on a television screen. On the contrary, it’s often an even odder sight to see a child playing with toy cars, or brushing a doll’s hair, whilst waiting for their kids’ meal at a restaurant. Recent studies have shown that the amount of time young children spend on electronic devices has tripled in the last four years alone. Further studies have shown that young children eight years and younger, spend on average up to four to five hours per day on electronic devices. These numbers are set to increase as the years progress. As we move onto what is predicted to be a tech-dominated future, how do we prepare our children to acquire the key skills they need to be creative, imaginative, innovative, while staying unique to their individualism? Well, worry not. KidzUnplugged has got you covered. We have…

IBRU TASKS UNDERGRADUATES ON CREATING WEALTH THROUGH ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Image
Undergraduates in tertiary institutions have been told that the most potent tool to fight poverty is entrepreneurship, creatively used in conjunction with substantial public and private sector investment in education, healthcare, skills development and significant investment in infrastructure development. 
This was the position of Goodie Ibru during his lecture on Wealth Creation: A Practical Experience, which he delivered at Caleb University, Imota, Lagos. Ibru who was the former President of the Nigerian Stock Exchange, defined entrepreneurship as the capacity or ability to identify a need that needs to be met; and to meet that need by organising and effectively and efficiently combining factors of production to produce or provide the required good or service and receiving a reward or making gain at the end of the entire process.” Stating how entrepreneurship can promote institutions, as a businessman, he used himself as a case study. 

He said: “I have been privileged to associate wit…

Image
The hopes of the several tens of thousands who graduate from our various educational institutions each year are dashed due to the limited employment opportunities in the public sector. In order to provide alternative opportunities for the graduates and others who are willing to venture into their own businesses, government continue to provide the requisite support and incentives needed to help them find their feet.
