Africa is at a tipping point. There’s an entire generation eager to bootstrap themselves and others out of poverty, to reach self-sufficiency. They’re starting an entrepreneurial revolution, and they need role models.
You’ve heard of adventure travel? You’ve heard of eco-travel? Now there’s Entrepreneurial travel. New Scholars invites you to join us on an Entrepreneurial Safari to Kenya this Summer.
Come share your insights and experience on business and life; share your thoughts, opinions, and lessons learned on the start-up process with 50 African entrepreneurs eager to learn. Eleven role models participated last year; the result: five viable business plans.
There are only five slots open. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to see the impact you make.
New Scholars was founded by Garang Akau—one of the original “Lost Boys of Sudan” who was in the documentary and the only Lost Boy to graduate from Stanford University, and Darius Golkar, an entrepreneur since age 13 who founded three companies—and sold one—before the age of 25.
