Student Inc. Programme Highlights
My experience of taking part in Student Inc. has been nothing but positive, even while posing challenges throughout. The first day of the programme was great. We went to play foot golf and we got to know everyone throughout the day. Another highlight was when I sat down and met with my business mentor and spoke about challenges with my business. From that, I was able to understand the challenges which faced me and overcome them.
Any previous entrepreneurship experience before you joined Student Inc.?
This is the first time that I have embarked on such a programme.
What connections did you make on the programme?
From this programme, I have made friends with many people, met prospectus clients and business partners, but also received great knowledge and insight from people who have a lot of business knowledge and who are able to give their advice to me about my business.
What advice would you give to someone thinking of applying to Student Inc.?
I believe that anyone who can only see themselves being successful will have no other choice, but to be successful. Believe in your business, but be open to constructive criticism. I believe that anyone who is considering applying for this programme to definitely take the leap and give it your best shot.
