WHAT DO YOU GET FROM BEING IN THE PROGRAM?
We have come up with a carefully crafted 6-month curriculum for budding/ emerging entrepreneurs to get them started, as well as a 10-week curriculum for experienced entrepreneurs looking to scale-up in the African market.
This was done in collaboration with Academic input from lecturers around the world as well as industry experts to ensure that it serves the African market. It incorporates the content desired by current entrepreneurs in Kenya who wish they had learnt before starting their own businesses.
We currently have a large number of educated young people in the country with degrees that have minimal relevance in the real world. You are taught to be an employee but never an entrepreneur.
The curriculum includes elements such as:
- Getting ahead of your competitors in the digital era, how to create a disruptive business model.
- Innovating for the bottom of the pyramid.
- How to handle risk.
- How to do what your competitors do better and
- The entrepreneur of the 21st century.
It further incorporates coaching, inter-personal skills and leadership development. We also decided to have essential elements such as accounting for your business, social media marketing, who to employ and when, incorporating technology into your business and operations.
This curriculum will involve theory classes taught by industry professionals and lecturers, coaching sessions offered, leadership training, team work, case cracks, practical case solving from company problems, internships, job shadowing and writing a business plan that implements all the tools taught.
As an entrepreneur you get to be the very first to get this content! You get the offering and also get coached by our world class experts coming from all over the world, after which you also get the chance to showcase your business idea to our partners.
Further, Arielle will offer the opportunity to get seed funding for select businesses.
