today’s changing environment. Thinking involves reasoning; and to be critical requires acts of
careful judgment. So, what is critical thinking? It is the ability to think clearly and rationally

making the right decision is a challenge. The end goal is to facilitate sound decision-making
in business.
This workshop takes the participants through to understand the journey of a technopreneur,
and how to apply critical thinking in solving those key challenges that a technopreneur faces.

Objectives

At the end of the course, you will be able to
• Understand the critical thinking concepts, methodologies, and techniques.
• Identify and apply critical thinking to overcome the mental blocks that could hinder your
technopreneurship journey.
• Apply critical thinking to achieve your success as a technopreneur.
