Junior Entrepreneur Programme
Your contribution as a mentor has been critical in enabling us to develop the programme, which is pioneering the development of young people for a career in entrepreneurship. -Jerry Kennelly, Entrepreneur Programme
The Young Entrepreneur Programme is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to illustrating the validity of entrepreneurship as a career choice. Its mission is to help identify, inform, recognise and celebrate the next generation of business leaders – and their educators.
The Young Entrepreneur Programme is a unique opportunity to explore and develop the talents of young entrepreneurs. It complements traditional learning by encouraging workshops, case studies and interaction with key business people on top of the participants own ideas. The programme encourages a link between business people, educators and students. At an entrepreneurship event, participating students will get the opportunity to have their ideas challenged and encouraged by leading entrepreneurs.
Fluirse assisted in the development of the programme and also created the assessment and reporting system that enables all programme participants to be evaluated online. The system tracks and records the results of the students and provides the programme leaders with detailed reports on the progress of the participants. This system provides real-time reporting that can be accessed at the click of a button.
Fluirse was a contributor to the business programme by providing mentoring to the participants in the areas of business planning, finance for start-ups, sales and marketing, social media and also planning for growth.
