Event description

Description

Is your child aged between 11-16? Would you like them to get hands-on experience in being an entrepreneur, running a business or working in the corporate field? Do you live in an inner or outer London borough?

Entrepreneurs are thought of as national assets to be cultivated, motivated and encouraged to the greatest possible extent. In addition to creating wealth from their entrepreneurial ventures, they also create jobs and the conditions for a prosperous society, while their innovations may improve our standard of living.

Global Entrepreneurship Week is an annual event that is a celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. For Global Entrepreneurship Week this year, we want to encourage young business-minded people to reach their entrepreneurial aspirations and dreams.

Similar to the world-famous TV show, we want to put young people through an exciting Dragon’s Den Challenge. This will involve them coming up with a business idea in a specific amount of time and pitching it to a judging panel. This will provide them with hands-on experience in entrepreneurship while teaching them simple business principles, team-work, presentation skills, and effective time management.

The programme for the day will include:

  • Introduction to entrepreneurial skills

  • A workshop on how to develop and validate a business idea

  • A masterclass on public speaking and pitching skills

  • Coming up with a business idea or product

  • Creating a pitch or presentation

  • Pitching the idea or product to a judging panel

The public speaking masterclass will be led by one of our facilitators, Moe Hashimi. Moe founded 13 businesses in 11 different industries and helped found over 30 brands in the entertainment sector. As a StartUp Specialist, he works with entrepreneurs and organisations to develop growth strategies, deliver effective communication models and create clear cultures. He currently mentors over 100 entrepreneurs globally and is an investment consultant for a major player in the subsidiary market.
