Young Entrepreneur Programme
The Young Entrepreneur Programme is a unique opportunity to explore and develop the talents of all participants. It complements traditional learning by layering workshops, case studies and interaction with key business leaders on top of participants own ideas.
The Young Entrepreneur Progamme is different from any other programme due to the interaction students get with real business people in the classroom. Business people who are successful in their sector take time to mentor the participating students and guide their learning. This gives students examples of first hand success. The programme creates a link between business people, educators and students. Connecting to a network of national entrepreneurs means the Young Entrepreneur Programme acts as an interface between the entrepreneurial community and budding entrepreneurs. This uniquely close, synergistic, collaboration produces a hub of ‘entrepreneurship stimulation’.
