Courage, Purpose and Entrepreneurship
Charles Omagor, Philip. M. Mubiru

The purpose of the study was to investigate the impact of courage and purpose on entrepreneurship of the youth in Uganda. While the problem of youth unemployment has continued to be tackled at the macro- policy level the percentage of unemployed youth has continued to rise currently estimated at 83% in Uganda. This experience seems to suggest that the macro level approach needs to be supplemented. The study established that the process of instilling courage amongst the youth has largely been ignored in youth self – employment strategies. Most of the youth often enter the world of work ill prepared psychologically to confront the realities of the world and this may have led some of them to abandon the entrepreneurship path. The study concludes that while courage is important in entrepreneurship there is a need to recognize and inculcate moral and spiritual dimensions into entrepreneurial activity.
