LAHORE - Pakistani universities should stop producing job hunters, said eminent entrepreneurs and academicians.

They were addressing the seminar on Role of Educational Institutions in Development Entrepreneurship Ecosystem at the Government College University. GCU VC Dr Khaleequr Rahman chaired the seminar organised by the university’s Economics Department in collaboration with the Entrepreneurial Development and Advisory Services (EDAS).

Almas Hyder said Pakistan produced entrepreneurs either by accident or inheritance and even social and cultural values were not supportive for development of entrepreneurship ecosystem.

He criticized that there were no incubation centres for production of educated entrepreneurs, coaching and even universities were stuck in theoretical teaching and giving minor attention to training. 

Speaking on the occasion, VC said that scientific discoveries and technological developments could not lead to economic progress without entrepreneurship.

He said the drive to boost entrepreneurial activity required efforts from various quarters. 

He said entrepreneurs were successful when they had access to human, financial and professional resources they needed.
