Riphah University Introduces Webpreneurship as a Regular Course

clip_image001[7]In Pakistan where job situation is getting miserable, there is a big need to utilize skills of our young in the right direction and don’t let them wasted by just waiting for the turn to get the right job.

Eyeing the scenario, Riphah International University has introduced ‘Webpreneurship’ as a three credit hours regular course in their BS Software Engineering.

It is a very positive sign in terms of all the efforts being made by Webpreneur University (Dubai) and Riphah International University for spreading entrepreneurial mindset in students.

Our very own, Zunnurain Khalid of UltraSpectra is teaching and more like mentoring the first batch of 28 students in ‘Webpreneurship’ there.

Just to give you an idea, students are not given any notes or presentations in order to get rid of the mindset of ‘Rattalization’ rather they come up with their ideas on which they have to work throughout the semester under the mentor so that by the end of semester they are be able to pursue it on their own.

The idea of this course is to encourage the entrepreneurial activities in students by mentoring them, giving the right grooming environment where their brain starts functioning like an entrepreneur, presenting different case studies in front of them to get inspiration and take a leap of faith in themselves to get into entrepreneurship as well.

We hope that the process continues and more and more universities take up the model to promote entrepreneurship in our young lot which is 60% of all our population more importantly the future of Pakistan.

We should join hands to promote such activities collectively. If you are a university and need to talk to to Zunnurain Khalid for more information on the course – or you want to get it started in your university, simply leave your message in the comments below or your contact details on this page.

  • W’Salams Kashif,

    First of all, this is a very practical course which includes a ‘Step by Step Process Model’ to take you from a simple idea developed by yourself and take it to through its development stages towards actual successful launch. With the help of other successful entrepreneurs as your mentor, the chances of your success increase. As mentioned in the article that this course does not theoretical at all rather practical one.

    All of the class either in a group or individual work on their idea and with the help and mentoring of the expert (the class lectures) help each of them take their idea to the next level. I’ll be featuring actual success stories from the class as well very soon as the course is almost ending, and out of 28 registered students I got Five success stories already.

    I plan to keep this Mentor course going. Reach me in my email if you need more details: zunnurain[at]ultraspectra[dot]com

    @ZunNurain, What is this 3 credit hours course all about? Internet Start Ups? How to be one of the Internet Entrepreneurs? What are the things required? How to start, where to start and blah blah?

    How someone outside from the said Institution can join your course?

    • Hello Muddassir,

      The basic function for inducing this course in university was putting in our efforts as mentors for the young talents who have brilliant ideas. All they need is a push and right guidance to get them started. This course enables them to learn establish their entrepreneurial thing on actual grounds. With the help of practical exercises like ‘Idea Development’, ‘Business Modeling’, ‘Marketing and PR’, ‘Setting up the base’ etc. they learn what things on practical grounds. The extra push required left is to hook them up with the related people so that they can take their thing to the next step.

      To be an Internet Entrepreneur or a ‘Webpreneur’ you need is a strong idea, execution plan, business model and then engage a right team. But everything starts from a simple ‘IDEA’.

      UltraSpectra is lining up a training academy for incubating entrepreneurs with related skill development and mentoring. I’ll announce it soon.
