Entrepreneurship can indeed play a significant role in contributing to the growth and development of a country. Entrepreneurs are the driving force behind innovation, new business ventures and job creation. They establish and expand businesses, which leads to economic growth and increased employment opportunities. By starting their own ventures, entrepreneurs create jobs not only for themselves but also for others, stimulating economic activity and ultimately reducing unemployment rates.

It does not really matter whether the new businesses are being successful or not in the short term, but to run a business, founders create opportunities for each other which are highly beneficial for the economy.

Successful entrepreneurs generate wealth through their innovative business models. This wealth creation can have a trickle-down effect on the national economy. They invest their profits, stimulate consumer spending, and pay taxes, contributing to government revenues. In modern economies, government spend back those taxes on the business ecosystem to flourish entrepreneurship all across the country, especially under-developed cities and towns.

Entrepreneurship brings down barriers between communities and cultures and builds bridges. As a result, people stand up for their rights and push back against corruption. But here is the problem. The guys who rule our country don't want to empower people. It's not in their interest. When nations are aware and educated, people ask questions and demand economic stability, justice, quality education and health facilities.

Additionally, entrepreneurship can create opportunities for marginalized or disadvantaged individuals to improve their socioeconomic status, potentially reducing poverty and income inequality. By creating jobs, entrepreneurs help lift people out of poverty by providing them with income and stability. When more individuals have access to decent employment, the poverty and crime rate decreases. It is a proven fact that entrepreneurship has a positive impact on poverty and crime rates, it is important to recognize that it is not a standalone solution. Governments, policymakers, and society as a whole need to work together to create an enabling environment that supports entrepreneurship, provides access to resources and education, and tackles systemic issues contributing to poverty and crime.

Politicians and rulers of Pakistan will never be able to bring prosperity. Don't waste time for anyone's aid. Help yourself. For a prosperous Pakistan; entrepreneurship is the only way forward.
