    Ingvar Kamprad

    The IKEA founder’s first foray into enterprise was when he was a young boy . He discovered that he could buy matches in bulk cheaply from Sweden and sell them individually at a low price whilst still making a good profit. He then started to diversity the products he sold – from seeds, Christmas decorations through to pens and pencils. Furniture was eventually added to his product range in 1948 and the flat pack revolution began.

    Richard Branson
    He may not have achieved the best grades at school, but the young Richard Branson certainly would have got top marks for his entrepreneurship. He was just 16 when he founded a small newspaper aimed at students – the Student – featuring articles with rock stars, celebrities of the day and famous politicians. Noticing though that record stores were not discounting records, he started running ads selling records at discount prices. The orders started flooding in , and soon the record sales were much more profitable than the newspaper sales. Virgin records had begun. What is now one of the world’s most famous brands started its’ life in a small office above an old shoe shop
    .

    Michael Dell
    The founder of Dell computers started his career as a dishwasher in a local Chinese restaurant. However it was whilst at university that he started assembling and selling IBM PC compatible computers. His idea was that if he sold PC systems directly to customers, his products would be cheaper than that of his competitors. He also believed that consumers would want individually customized computers and that is what he provided. He was right – and ended up dropping out of university at at the age of 19 after taking a loan from his grandmother to set up what we now know as Dell Computer.

    Michael J. Kittridge
    Michael J. Kittridge ‘s entrepreneurial endeavours first began one Christmas when he was a 16 year old, broke teenager. With no money to buy his mother a Christmas present, he tapped into his own creativity and resourcefulness. Simply by looking around his house, he found some metal bowls, used milk containers, used crayons and some fragrances, he experimented and made his mother a scented candle. His mother never actually received the candle though – a neighbour saw it first and promptly bought it. Realizing he was on to something, the enterprising teenager and his cousin set about making more of them, selling them to family, friends and neighbours. The business that we now know worldwide as The Yankee Candle company had begun. So, when Michael sold the business in 1998 for $500 million , it was certainly an excellent turnaround for a once virtually penniless teenager.

    Lord Sugar

    Love him or loathe him, The Apprentice star certainly showed entrepreneurial drive from the off. At the age of 12 he started making ginger beer and selling to his neighbours. But of course his selling skills truly developed when he started selling car aerials from the back of a van that he had bought with

    True Komando, Cheki kama Michael Dell alivyo anza mpaka kufikia kufanikiwa, na Historia ya Ujasirimali Duniani inasema wazi ni katika Mazingira magumu sana ndipo Wajasirimali hujitokeza na kuwa Imara, wajasirimali wote wakubwa dunia walijitokeza katika mazingira magumu sana, Ukisoma historia zao ndo utaamiini, na mara nyingi katika mazingira ya starehe ni vigumu sana kupata wajasirimali, na watalamu wa maswala ya biashara wanasema kwamba kwa kipindi hiki cha kuanzia miaika ya 2000 na kuendela wavumvuzi wamepungua sana ukiringanishwa na zamani

    Wavumbuzi bado wapo, wengi tu, kilichonadilika ni era tu, now tupo kwa information era, hivyo vitu vingi vinavyohusiana na technology ndio vinatoa matajiri wengi, kumbuka pia technology ni hadi usome, ndio uwe mfumbuzi, japo si lazima upate elimu ya darasani. Ndio maana unaona watu kama kina whats app, wametoka google, wametengeneza whats app, wameiuza kwa facebook kwa bilions of money, same applied to instagram ilianza kidogo kidogo imekuja uzwa kwa facebook kwa bilions pf money, hivyo matajiri wapo, wengi tu, hata vijana wapo wengi tu. Sema Africa kwa ujumla ndio wa kuhesabu.
