                    WHY THIS WORKSHOP IS A GREAT IDEA

                    • A good idea is just the start, you need to know how to make it sustainable. Learn fundamental skills to recognise opportunities, act with purpose and build collaborative networks
                    • Entrepreneurs create their own reality, rather than relying on organisations to make it for them, especially in light of the dire economic situation in SA. Even if they are employed, an entrepreneurial mindset will help them solve old problems in new ways.
                    • This is a non-negotiable for 21st century career success: the ability to think differently, join unexpected dots, solve unanticipated challenges.

                    Encouraging the right kind of entrepreneurial learning within a teen’s formative years is what really makes a difference later on in life. However, entrepreneurship education should not only focus on building businesses just to make a profit. Instead training ought to be aimed at providing learners with a holistic skills set that enables them to recognise opportunities, act with purpose and build collaborative networks.
