The Global Entrepreneurship Network operates an array of programs in 180 countries aimed at making it easier for anyone, anywhere to start and scale a business.
Startup Huddle is a program designed to help one entrepreneur at a time while strengthening the local ecosystem. Entrepreneurs discover solutions to the challenges they face through purposeful engagement with a broad array of voices from their local community.
This exciting and unifying event will take place monthly, online launching on Friday 13 August 2021. Entrepreneurs with businesses in the startup stage are encouraged to apply.
- Like minded community members will share and tackle business challenges together in a safe space.
- Interact with global entrepreneurs who are mentors, investors or sponsors who can assist with guidance, collaboration and more.
- Share ideas and discuss new business opportunities.
During the event, two entrepreneurs will be given 5 minutes each to introduce themselves to the community, explain what their business entails and what they seek to achieve in the event. This will be followed up by a 20 minute Q&A session where there will be discussions on the various areas where the business owners sought help.
Through GEN's partnership, Virtuoso Digital Agency aims to develop, support and grow entrepreneurial ecosystems in townships to enable and increase economic opportunities led by young entrepreneurs in South African township and rural communities.
