The Young Entrepreneur Programme gives students aged 15-18 an immersive experience of life as a successful entrepreneur. You will be coached through a series of interactive simulations, seminars, case studies and Q&A sessions by a group of passionate leaders from the world of business. You will gain both the hard business skills you need to succeed: how to build, market and finance a global brand, AND the soft skills that make the difference: negotiation, leadership and motivation.
The programme takes place over two days – Saturday dedicated to building a billion-dollar business and Sunday to gaining the skills of a top CEO. You can choose to attend either one or both days.
Day 1: Building a Billion Dollar Business is also offered as a live & online programme (via our state-of-the-art, interactive online platform) with exactly the same content and top professionals as the in-person programme.
Successful business leaders will coach you through live, interactive simulations, including:
