Patrick Bitature met with the group at the Protea Hotel, which he owns. He spoke to the group about what he is doing to help sustainable development as an entrepreneur in Uganda. He is the founder of many businesses, one of them is Simba Telecom. Simba Telecom is one of the largest providers of cellular service in Africa. He spent a lot of time talking about sustainable projects that have a social impact. An example of this is a farm that he is planning to build in Northern Uganda. This farm would help the economy and bring a living to people in this region that have struggled with conflict recently. He is also finding ways to bring more energy to Uganda. Mr. Bitature believes that habits of success make people successful. He also said that good attitude and hard work make successful entrepreneurs. What did Patrick Bitature say that will stay with you as you continue this journey in Uganda? What endeavors do you think Mr. Bitature should involve himself in to create sustainable development in Uganda?
