Mr Charles Mensah, the Managing Partner for Trust Consult has urged young people starting businesses to consider partnering with like-minded youths to build strong and sustainable businesses.
He said it was time the youth built on a platform where they could come out as partners towards establishing lasting businesses that could stand the test of time.
He was speaking at the second edition of the National Multi-sectoral Stakeholders’ Dialogue on the theme: “Financing Opportunities for Youth-led Businesses” organised by the Youth Sector Engagement Group.
The National Multi-Sectoral Stakeholders’ Dialogue brought together a number of youth groups from across the country to serve as a platform for engaging with government, the private sector, key development partners and the youth on critical issues affecting youth development.
Mr Mensah said most well-established and sustainable businesses are built on partnerships, made up of shareholders and now transformed into sustainable companies.
He urged the young entrepreneurs to embrace partnership adding that, the youth could run their own business but it is healthier if they should collaborate with others.
