This represents so many exciting opportunities and possibilities for SA Teen Entrepreneur for the future. Is entrepreneurship not about being able to adapt in an ever-changing environment after all?

#TEENBOSS 2017 A RESOUNDING SUCCESS!

Wow! What an experience! #TeenBoss 2017 was absolutely LIT from start to finish!

The group of young learners was geared to take away as much as they could about entrepreneurship from the event from Day 1, and they certainly all brought their ‘A-Game’! Their business ideas ranged from innovative modes of transport for schools, to novel tuition techniques to make studying easy and enjoyable for matriculants, to new and fresh ideas for child care services, plus many more.

The judges did not have an easy time adjudicating; all the entries were well thought-through and presented, but at the end of the three-day boot camp, the winning team, whose business idea was centred on the creation of leadership and development camps to tackle boredom during the school holidays, was Goodwood College.

We wish to extend our congratulations to Goodwood College (aka Teen Transformers), as well as all the other participating teams, i.e. Oude Molen Academy of Science & Technology (aka Learners with Attitude), EE Van Projects (aka J.A.C.K – which happens to be the first letters of the group members’ names), two teams from Atlantis Schools (aka #Boss Tomorrow and #Red Devils), two teams from Bonga Cycling Academy (aka The Stars of Tomorrow and Le Pelleton), and Isilimela Comprehensive High School (aka Young Minds). To us, you are all winners!

An ‘extra’ big thank you also to our sponsors and partners – Praesidium Capital Management/IBuild, Shoprite, the Sage Foundation, The River Club, Over the Rainbow, Entrepreneur & Management Solutions, and The Agency - without whom #TeenBoss 2017 would not have been possible.

The Deputy Minister of Tourism, Ms Elizabeth Thabethe, paid us a surprise visit on Day 1 to encourage our young participants on their entrepreneurial journeys. Thank you, Deputy Minister Thabethe, for spending the morning with us!

Our social media channels were abuzz with activity, thanks to The Agency and all our partners who participated in promoting the event on digital media. We’d say in excess of 200 000 impressions for the 3-day period is not too shabby!

SOUL MATE GIRLS SPEND THE MORNING WITH WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS


Thanks to the Sage Foundation, our young entrepreneurs, Reabetswe, Phumla, and Thandokazi, who run their catering equipment hire business, Soul Mate, spent the morning of July 25 with some of the country’s foremost women entrepreneurs in Hyde Park in Johannesburg. The girls were part of a discussion panel where they debated some of the challenges and opportunities that come with starting your own business. With people like Basetsana Kumalo, Redi Thlabi, Mpho Letlaphe, and Zuki Mzozoyana in the room, the team got some great business advice to guide them on their journey.

As part of our efforts to reach more young learners across the country with our entrepreneurship messages and activities, we have applied to become a beneficiary of the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet Programme, and are pleased to share with you that we have been approved. Being part of the MySchool Programme will enable us to raise much-needed funds to start up more Entrepreneur Societies, but importantly, being a MySchool beneficiary will go a long way to ensuring that our projects become self-sufficient and sustainable.

It is therefore imperative that we are able to sign on as many supporters of the
SA Teen Entrepreneur Trust as possible.

As a valued stakeholder of the Trust, we would be most appreciative if you would consider becoming a MySchool supporter for SA Teen Entrepreneur by completing the attached form and either returning it to nadia.snyders@teenentrepreneur.co.za for processing, or by registering online at https://www.myschool.co.za/supporter/apply/.
