Businessman Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia has hailed Dr. Innocent Nahabwe for writing a book that will help young businesses and people. The successful businessman said he was respectful and amazed when he read the book.
Dr. Ruparelia was speaking Friday at Kingdom Kampala during the launch of Dr. Nahabwe’s book titled ‘Treating Small Businesses: Lessons From My Operations’. He was the Guest of Honour at the book launch.
“This book will give guidance to growth of startups and young people in business,” Dr. Ruparelia said. He described Dr. Nahabwe with whom they ‘have been in a long journey together’ as a consistent man who never fails on his obligations.
Dr. Ruparelia encourage Dr. Nahabwe and young people in business to think beyond their generation when doing business. He also challenged the audience on the importance of honesty and hard work.
“In business, it is important to keep your word and maintain consistency which is very, very important. Innocent has worked very hard and is a good man. In our nine years of working together, he has never defaulted on rent and has always paid on time. So, just like him, do not give up and believe in yourself” Dr. Sudhir said.
In the book, Dr. Nahabwe details his life’s journey, employment, starting out as an entrepreneur and how he has managed to overcome the challenges associated with doing business in an economy like Uganda’s.
He said he was overwhelmed by the response this book has received. “Jumia Uganda, who are selling the book online, recently called me to say that they have never sold as many copies for a Ugandan book in this short period of time! They are quite surprised – and so am I!” said an excited Dr. Nahabwe.
As a businessman, Dr. Nahabwe successfully established a number of business ventures including Club Amnesia, a night club; Kagwirawo Sports Betting; Galaxy FM, a radio station; Blue Cube, an SMSing services company.
He previously worked at Red Pepper newspaper as the advertising manager.
