Going through medical school and beyond is daunting task that doctors have persistently and successfully conquered. Medical school can impart many knowledge pieces like pathology, healthy life style and more. But the experience could also teach you what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. The startup cost doesn’t have to be a bank breaking figure.
The pathways to becoming a doctor are the same pathways required to become successful in business, be it agribusiness, engineering or medical practice as a business.
But why aren’t more doctors getting into medical business in Kenya, a sector with huge potential financially and socially? Besides the fact that most entrepreneurs are risk takers while most doctors (and most learned people) are risk averse, startup cost is a major impediment in Kenya and most of Africa.
Your line of practice could be the most lucrative business today given sustained effort, focus purpose and the right equipment. Don’t let the cost be your impediment. It is interesting to notice the differences between a business proposal formats in African universities VS a business proposal in colleges in USA. Business proposals (usually at masters’ level) in Africa starts with financial statement whereas in USA, finances comes last.
The implication is that most African entrepreneurs are limited by the amount of money they have at hand, not their idea, desire, goal or purpose. On the other side, before a scholar can start thinking about their finances, they have already laid out their idea, giving it a potential to be funded by donors, bank loans, equipment companies and venture capitalists.
