Young Entrepreneurs alumni
The main aim of having the alumni is to bring together young entrepreneurs that have been part of the various global trips focusing on a number of sectors such as tech, education and agriculture. Through the alumni programme, these young entrepreneurs will be given a platform to meet other leading fellow SA entrepreneurs in their sector and catch up with fellow programme participants from previous trips.
The programme creates an opportunity for young learners to acquire practical hands-on skills to launch and manage their own small businesses. It is currently offered to 10 schools, in the 9 provinces across the country.
The Junior Innovators Competition as part of the programme aims to reward an individual who shows a high level of entrepreneurship potential as well as to expose all the finalists to the real world of being an entrepreneur.
