Course Overview
This new, highly interactive programme has been designed to help you create greater levels of entrepreneurial flair; innovation and agility within your organisation.

To thrive in today’s volatile business environment requires organisations to systematically challenge assumptions, identify hidden opportunities and generate alternative approaches faster than the competition.

Indeed, organisations increasingly need to operate with the agility typical of entrepreneurs. But how can businesses sustain an entrepreneurial spirit while operating at scale?

The aim of the course is to provide both a practical and theoretical insight into entrepreneurship in South Africa, and the associated processes involved in identifying an opportunity and launching and new venture.
