WELCOME ADDRESS BY THE COUNTRY DIRECTOR ESTEM NIGERIA
“A successful journey of a thousand miles begins with small short practical steps”
The concept of ESTEM was borne out of a desire to create a shift from wrong mentality; make a change from old norm; create opportunities; advance a course and eventually make impact by offering global remedy.
Economic challenges, financial hardship and unemployment or under employment are major problems of virtually all the continents of the world today, many people look up to the government for solutions, but alas!, the solutions are not with the government, but with us as the citizens of one country or the other.
Many students are studying and have studied sciences, but most of them cannot convert the theories learnt to real life hands- on practical that could proffer solutions to the myriads problems of the world.
As the name implies, ESTEM brings a new method at solving the seemingly absent interconnection or link between science and technology on one hand and entrepreneurship on the other hand. It has been discovered that many projects of science and technology that could have given rise to the solutions of major global problems today have been left to rot in some laboratories and sites simply because reasonable awareness has not been created about such projects and the inventors who are mainly young scientists are being discouraged and have taken quick solution to economic challenges by taking on jobs that are not related to their fields of natural endowments or gifting.
