The best odds in Uganda are from FORTEBET.BET HERE and Win BIG.

Comedian Patrick “Salvado” Idringi has tipped University students on  entrepreneurship and managing personal finances. This after he was invited by the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) to speak at Nkumba University and YMCA during the NSSF Career Expo 2020.

Salvado was invited to give a talk about self-startups, how to manage finance by young people and common mistakes made by young in handling their finance.

YMCA students who did not hide their excitement upon seeing the seasoned comedian flooded the venue and before the lecture had started, they were begging for selfies with the comedian.

Salvado who is a Makerere graduate of Telecom Engineering started off the lecture with his story of how started his career as an Engineer in one of the biggest Telecom companies and ended up on stage as a stand-up comedian.

He resigned from his office job for comedy in 2010. He kick started his comedy career by auditioning for the Multichoice Stand-up comedy competitions where he emerged second, winning US$5000.

“I realized that I was doing serious things but getting unserious money but now I am doing unserious things but getting serious money,” Salvado said.

The father of two told the students that they should not be stuck to what they learnt in class because the society outside school is different and needs people with open minds, who can adjust to different the changing environment.

He added that most of the Uganda have failed to attempt to start any business because when they only see starting capital in terms of cash, mentioning that there is a lot of untapped human or social capital that is capable of starting and maintaining any business in the world.

Of course, comedy was his best way of delivering his lectures as he tried to emphasize the relevance of technology in searching for knowledge when he jokingly said that even you want to become the best night dancer in town , you can go to YouTube and get the most recent information.
