Welcome to the AVOCADO Incubator Programme (International)

Do you have something that you think is impossible to execute – but want to at least explore it?

The AVOCADO Incubator Programme is all about equipping and kick-starting entrepreneurs with innovative and ethical tools for success.

AVOCADO is a committed nine-month engagement designed to fan the spark of innovation and to successfully launch small businesses with little or no cash (’boot- strapping’). The programme provides foundational theoretical knowledge and practical applications about leadership, strategy, entrepreneurship, sustainability and innovation based on christian principles. That’s the ethical part.

Participants will develop their capabilities and skills to act upon business ideas in a challenging environment that digs deep.

Naturally, entrepreneurial activities can be very different depending on the type of organization being started, ranging in scale from solo projects (involving the entrepreneur only part-time) to more ambitious undertakings that go on to create many job opportunities within a community or country.

Small entrepreneurial activities may involve establishing trade businesses (such as starting a plumbing business) or larger more significant entrepreneurial activities that may involve a new manufacturing process.

Exploring the hazards and finding the intellectual courage to execute ideas, lies at the heart of this programme.

By the end, participants will have gained the confidence to start businesses that have been tested within our workshops, with prospects for viability and profitability in our very competitive 21st century world.

The AVOCADO Incubator Programme is a collaboration between Money4YOU and the NATURAL RESOURCE CONSERVATION NETWORK.
