Stephen's top tips:

  • "Seek financial assistance and mentoring support early."
  • "Conduct your market research early - find out about the global market and where you are seeking to sell your product or service."
  • "You need to be determined and not afraid of failure. Being an entrepreneur is a lifestyle and not a nine to five job, so you must be committed."
