    Small and medium entrepreneurships can eliminate poverty

    in Business

    Musaba Chailunga, a prominent commentator on Zambian development, argues that “we need to encourage people to be entrepreneurial and not allow the government to be the only answer. Even the government and semi-government companies that have been closed—for example, Livingstone Motor Assembly, Mulungushi textiles and Mansa batteries—were not founded, designed, or built by Zambians. These organisations were Zambian only on paper because the designs, the loans, and the parts were foreign made. Similarly, today's lifeline companies in Zambia as such the Lumwana are not Zambian. Therefore, our country has no patents or inventions and this may continue as long as we insist that all that government owns is ours. In the 30 years that Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines was state owned ... can someone provide me with a list of indigenous businesses that supplied parts or equipment to ZCCM?”. Mr Chailunga’s argument is undoubtable and supported. However, how can we turn this status quo around?
    Kambidima speaks to Colin H. Makala to find out how we can pursue effective and sustainable small and medium entrepreneurships to alleviate household poverty. Mr Makala is the Publisher of the SME South Africa (http://www.smesouthafrica.co.za/). The main purpose of this paper is to give a lifeline to small and medium entrepreneurs in South Africa. Having started this newspaper with his partner at the time when information and communication is going digital, we can describe Colin as a successful entrepreneur.

    "Notes from the Future" Book: Episode #5: Support from the City, Support from the Crowd

    in Books

    In our fifth episode of “Notes from the Future”, we jump ahead to December 2011, and take a look back at how Chicago’s key business stakeholders – the mayor’s office, chamber of commerce, leading corporations and small businesses, academic institutions and entrepreneurs all were drawn into the Networlding Innovation & Collaboration Center (NICC) ecosystem and staked out their positions. How the Tribune Company was so supportive of converting their museum space in their Michigan Avenue headquarters, and why the Chicago Innovation Awards organization became a strong booster.



    Join Peter Balbus and me as we discuss the key factors that motivated all of their interest and what each party brought to the party. How this collective consciousness and critical mass drove the implementation of the NICC business plan, and why each of these players served such a critical role in achieving our shared goals.
