Entrepreneurs are known for their ability to think outside the box, identify gaps in the market, and come up with new solutions to problems. In today’s world, innovation is more critical than ever, and entrepreneurs play a critical role in driving innovation and progress. However, starting a business requires hard work and dedication. It takes a lot of effort, time, and resources to get a business off the ground, and entrepreneurs need to be persistent, resilient, and have a strong work ethic to succeed. Miles’s story teaches us the importance of persevering in the face of challenges. Success is not handed to anyone on a silver platter; it requires hard work and dedication.


By working with people from disadvantaged backgrounds, he was able to create value, provide job opportunities, and make a positive impact on the community. Graduates can also benefit from entrepreneurship by starting their own businesses or working for entrepreneurial ventures. The entrepreneurial mindset can help graduates to think creatively, identify opportunities, and create value.


Eradicating hunger requires a collective effort. It requires collaboration and partnerships between government, private sector, civil society, and other stakeholders. To eradicate hunger, we need to address the root causes, such as poverty, lack of access to education, healthcare, basic services, and quality food not dictated by others. We need to invest in education, infrastructure, and social protection systems to create an enabling environment for entrepreneurship and job creation.


Students and graduates have a crucial role to play in addressing societal issues and contributing to positive change. Graduating from university is just the beginning of a lifelong journey of learning and growth. It is essential to continuously upskill oneself and stay informed about current issues and trends to remain competitive and relevant in the job market.


Miles’ entrepreneurial journey teaches us several valuable lessons. Entrepreneurship is essential for creating job opportunities, promoting innovation, and making an impact on the community. It requires hard work, dedication, and collaboration to succeed. Graduates can benefit from entrepreneurship by developing an entrepreneurial mindset and leveraging their skills and knowledge to create value, Miles calls this, thinking like an ‘Intrapreneur’ not an ‘Entrepreneur’.


Moreover, eradicating hunger requires a collective effort, and companies like Gradlinc, which are focused on graduate unemployment, need to work in conjunction with passionate individuals such as Miles to create an enabling environment for entrepreneurship and job creation. One problem cannot be fixed without the other. We need to work together to address the root causes of hunger and poverty, create an enabling environment for entrepreneurship and job creation, and make a positive impact on our communities.
