During the 10 week programme, Entrepreneurs will be provided with access to rich experiential learning. Sessions are held once a week after hours. Support offered for up to 18 months post programme. The concept of success is that emerging entrepreneurs will be well equipped to start their own businesses a result of their exposure to entrepreneurship teachings.
Three Reasons Why This Entrepreneurship Training Rocks
- Linked to Venture Capital: The Seed Academy is part of an exciting ecosystem that potentially links entrepreneurship to venture capital funding. It is pioneering model of a early stage accelerator attuned to the realities in South Africa. The training does not promise venture capital funding, but I am certain if you complete the course, have a great idea and emerge as a potentially great entrepreneur, this training may open doors.
- Ten Weeks In The Evening: The format of the training looks awesome, with entrepreneurs needing to attend one evening a week for ten weeks. The course is applied one, meaning that after ten weeks you will have taken important steps to starting your business or improving an existing one.
- Stuck in a job you hate? Not certain about what to do next? Toying around with an idea for years and not getting anywhere? The training is commitment for ten weeks, and imagine that in ten weeks you would have taken the next step in building your business. Taking that first step with Seed Academy is a useful, practical and potentially life changing event.
