Meraki, school company team from McAuley House in Jhb, attended the Youth Entrepreneurship Exchange (YEEP)
Thanks to generous sponsorship from Law Trust (@lawtrustinfosec), the Meraki team, who won the national Company of the Year competition 2018, could attend YEEP. This camp assisted them in their final preparations for JA Africa regional Company of the Year, which kicks off this Wed 5 December, in Ghana.
Over three days the participants, which also included @JASwaziland alumni, converged at @GEN22OnSloane to be exposed to design thinking, branding, finance, teamwork & pitching skills. They were divided into teams and had to come up with an idea that they pitched to a team of judges, with mentoring and coaching built into the programme.
JA South Africa MD Nelly Mofokeng and Programme Coordinator Elias Sebola were on hand to support the team and Nelly was also a member of the judging panel.
