An investment. R7,000 [R5,000 if you are awarded a scholarship]. And it’s not just the money that you are investing in the programme, it is the time you will be spending as well.
We are giving Scholarships of R2,000 to students to apply on time. Once awarded the scholarship, you will only be eligible to pay R5,000. R1,000 is payable on registration, the balance is payable on installments of R1,000 over a period of 4 months.
There are three reasons for the tuition:
- Firstly, business education is expensive, and inaccessible to a lot of entrepreneurs. Our approach is to provide affordable quality business education therefore making it accessible. This is a not low-cost strategy to get customers and then later on increase the prices, it is a strategy born out of a real need for entrepreneurs to learn and grow their businesses. We are not seeking to build a group of elites, we are building a tribe of people who are passionate about innovation and entrepreneurship.
- The second reason is that the programme requires a significant amount of commitment. Not only time but the decision to overcome your status quo. One way we can make that likely to happen is to raise the stakes in terms of the work you will be expected to put in the programme.
- Lastly, the reason it is not free is that in order to build an environment focused on group dynamics and change, we’re investing in people. Every section of the programme has a full-time organizer behind it.
Any programme that is free, you are not the customer, you are the product.
Our goal is not to be big, it’s to be small. Small in size, but huge in our decision to create a difference, huge in our impact in nurturing innovative entrepreneurs who will solve big challenges in the world.
If this sort of change or investment is too much, we totally get it. The programme probably is not for you.
The good news is that all the content is in the world, free online or in accessible books.
There are no secrets.
But if you are that kind of person who invests in herself or you know that kind of person, I hope you will apply or share this with them.
Admission to the programme is by application only. To apply, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
