It takes bravery to step out and decide to start your own business.
It is a journey for few, A journey for the brave, A journey many may be willing to take, But few actually do.
Why you may ask?
In my time as a serial and social entrepreneur over the past 6 years, the one thing I have learnt is that entrepreneurs have only one main limitation in their journey, support. It may be financially, in the form of mentorship or access to connections and networks. The key point being that even in Africa, a continent known for its sense of community, support is lacking, yet still a most valuable asset.
We are launching the Build A Boss Scholarship for the youth, more specifically those who are at a disadvantage when it comes to easy access to the Arielle program. This scholarship fund allows for organisations, financial institutions, government, individuals and well-wishers to finance a part, or the full, amount of a student's fees giving them an opportunity to attend and be a part of the Arielle program.
Arielle’s core mission is to provide access to the disconnected. To mentor, train and coach entrepreneurs so that they can transform their lives in a such a way as to inspire growth to all those around them. We realized that even when we subsidized our program fee, a number of young entrepreneurs could not afford the program.
The very people that most needed the services that Arielle provides, are the very people that are unable to afford the program. Our hope moving towards June is to be in a position to fully sponsor 20 of young entrepreneurs. The Build A Boss Scholarship will allow us to do this.
Build an entrepreneur and you build a boss,
Build a boss and you build a community,
Build a community and you grow a nation.
This is a call to act. To build an entrepreneur to not just start a business but, through the program, have all the tools, connections, support, coaching and leadership skills they need to do so successfully.
