(Apprenticeship with a founder at an enterprise) + (Reflection, travel & learning workshops and Online learning modules)
The programme starts with the facilitated learning module.
Here, all the seekers receive the basic skills, exposure and mindsets required for them to start
their work on the ground equipped with confidence and capacity to solve the challenges of
the enterprise where they are placed.
Following this, the seekers will be placed with an enterprise.
Here they will learn through practice, reflection, discussions with their peer mentor and online learning modules.
The experience of working in an enterprise with experienced entrepreneurs and
solving complex real life challenges will serve as valuable experience that not many will get.
The seekers also leave the program with inspiration, relationships, advice, learnings and
connections that they can count on for the rest of their lives.
