Encouraging entrepreneurship in South Africa

 

Founded by some of South Africa’s most successful entrepreneurs, supported by Investec, the Startup School aims to facilitate, support and encourage entrepreneurship in South Africa. 

It offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to expand on their business insight through a challenging and interactive 12-week online learning journey. The course’s unique support structure of start-up coaching alongside comprehensive coursework means that each participant will develop and build on their entrepreneurial mindset. In addition to theoretical and practical learning, there is a strong mentorship pillar to support and grow the entrepreneurs.
 
The programme also enables participants to develop their network and make new connections. By the end of the course, they will have a comprehensive business plan, an enhanced understanding of how to develop and fund a business.
