A jack of all trades. entrepreneur. Crazy business adventurer. Daring businessman. Never-say-never opportunist.
These are some of the words that have been used to describe one man in the past. But yesterday, he officially launched a project that made him put pen to paper describing his journey so far.
Trained as a Veterinary Doctor but now a successful entrepreneur, Dr. Innocent Nahabwe on Friday launched his maiden book titled ‘Treating Small Businesses: Lessons From My Operations’. The event took place at the newly launched Kingdom Kampala Mall owned by property mogul Sudhir Ruparelia.
The 38 year old, who co-owns Club Amnesia, Blue Cube, Galaxy FM, Kagwirawo Sports Betting, among other entities, has had an eventful life having growing up and but even more eventful experience as an entrepreneur having started a plethora of businesses along the way.
“One of the main reasons for writing and publishing this book is to inspire Ugandans out there to take on this entrepreneurship journey without fear. If we each one employed two to three people we would change Uganda quickly,” Nahabwe said at the launch held at the newly launched Kingdom Kampala.
The book launch, which also doubled as a networking event for many, was graced by top executives and players from the business, media, entertainment, marketing and tourism industry in Uganda.
Ugandans have so far received the book positively, according to various comments online as well as an admission by the author himself.
“I am overwhelmed by the response this book has received. Jumia Uganda, who are selling the book online, recently called me to say that they have never sold as many copies for a Ugandan book in this short period of time! They are quite surprised – and so am I!” said an excited and jolly Nahabwe.
He also challenged the audience to use their social media following to their advantage by using their online networks and contacts for something useful and fruitful instead of using it for sharing entertainment stories, gossip, and jokes.
“How much value are the people around us or the people that we live with? Let us utilize these connections that we have by being valuable to each other; remember that value attracts value,” he said.
