Today Patrickson is the CEO of Source Rock - the first local Cameroonian firm to run a gas plant without any professional assistance. He took to LinkedIn to post about his success and told people who read his post to not give up.

Another website recently published about another young woman who started her venture named Blu Space communications, which aims to bridge the gap between governmental/corporate entities and local entrepreneurs. Stories like this are indeed very motivating and encourage one to not give up.
