Do you have something that you think is impossible to execute – but want to at least explore it?
The WCET Programme is designed to kickstart and bootstrap small businesses led by young people and women in underprivileged communities and developing nations.
The WCET Programme is a committed (up to) 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 ethical principles.
Participants will develop their capabilities and skills to act upon business ideas and opportunities that grow and thrive in challenging environments.
Naturally, entrepreneurial activities can be very different depending on the type of organisation 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 act upon business ideas that have been tested within our workshops, with prospects for viability and profitability in our very competitive 21st century world.
The WCET Programme is a collaboration between Money4YOU and local partners in various countries such as Cameroon, Uganda, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Togo and Kenya. Get in touch if you’d like to partner with us.
Instructor led and characterised by a strong emphasis on participants’ inter- activity involving lectures, discussions, brainstorming and role-playing.
