Engineering Entrepreneurship

EE is defined in two parts;
(a) engineering refers to the innovation and genius in making life simpler;
(b) entrepreneurship refers to efforts to make profits out of an investment.
EE therefore refers to investing our genius into profitably simplifying people's lives.

The motive isn't just making profit but it's improving lives.
Daimler and Benz may have made profits out of the car business but their greatest achievement is easing the transport problem.
Microsoft's Bill Gates may have become a billionaire but his motive was easing people's daily lives.
Econet's Strive Masiyiwa is earning millions in profits but his greatest contribution to Zimbabwe is making communication easier.
SeedCo is a business whose mission is coming up with seed varieties that yield enough food for Zimbabwe.

The engineer/designer/innovator/genius is profiting from their skills.
