The Street Business School, a Johannesburg-based institution for entrepreneurs, is taking applications for 2017.
Ten students are selected for the programme per annum. Their studies will be fully funded and they’ll have an existing business to “take and break” over the period of three years.
According to a press release sent to Ventureburn, the school “offers practical opportunities to aspiring entrepreneurs by giving selected candidates the chance to build startups and gain commercial business experience in a real-world setting”.
“We have launched Street Business School, the first-ever school for entrepreneurs, with the aim of creating more opportunities for young South Africans. We need to support more young talent to enable them to become job creators. Our future as a country lies in small businesses, and we are playing our part in growing the space,” says Gary Bannatyne, MD and co-founder of Street Business School.
“There is a clear need for entrepreneurs on the continent, but where should a young entrepreneur go after high school? University is not always the answer, but then what is? I strongly feel that the institutions that will dramatically improve society haven’t been created yet, and so we set about to create one of our own.”
Those wishing to apply can do so through the Street Business School website.
