Rise of the entrepreneur



Event Description

The Rise of the Entrepreneur is a unique and interactive initiative designed to encourage the option of entrepreneurship for students when leaving school, or for those that have graduated from University and would like to walk the journey of Entrepreneurship.

If you have an entrepreneurial mind-set and are excited about empowering the youth to think “out of the box” and ultimately generate their own income – you will really enjoy participating in this initiative.

The first session of the initiative will cover various topics under the entrepreneurship banner – namely the differences of being employed vs starting your own business, and the character of an entrepreneur.

The second session is the “Rise of the Entrepreneur” interactive Brainstorming and Business Presentation Session.

The learners will be divided into teams and the volunteers will assist each group to brainstorm a business concept based on an allocated topic.

The teams will be required to present the business concept to the rest of the group.

The volunteers will also make up the “panel of judges”. The judges will be given a list of criteria on what to mark on and each team will receive an overall score.

It certainly is a fun filled and creative afternoon.
