Abstract:
This case is a story of an average Pakistani boy, growing up in poverty but who nurtured qualities like courage to take independent initiatives, single mindedness, hard work, sheer focus on his goals and determination to cope with all circumstances. The decisions he made finally allowed him to carve out a very decent life for himself. The protagonist is Mr Abid, who through his observations and determinations has become a success. The case examines various events of his life that contributed towards his rise as an entrepreneur. The objectives of this case are: (1) To familiarize students with various character traits of an entrepreneur. (2) How an entrepreneur differs from a businessman in his outlook on business. (3) The importance of soft skills for an entrepreneur. The case is ideally suited for those students who are taking an introductory course of entrepreneurship and can lay a solid analytical foundation for more complex cases.
