Learn, Train and Start Businesses with Balloon Kenya….in Kenya this summer
UCL Advances is sponsoring 10 students to go to Kenya this summer for 6 weeks with Balloon Kenya to learn about enterprise, work with and help train Kenyan counterparts to start businesses, and to help them pitch for investment. You will gain training on enterprise and innovation on an international scale and help tackle poverty and create change in Kenya.
The programme includes a week of intensive training in entrepreneurship and innovation followed by working with Kenyan counterparts to start businesses that address problems in their local communities. The final step will be to pitch for some investment to get the business off the ground.
There are two cohorts (22 June – 4 August and 10 August – 22 September). You will be asked to indicate your preferred cohort though we will assume you are able to attend either unless explicitly stated on your application form.
The fee of £1995 (which includes accommodation, meals, insurance, in country transport and more) will be covered by UCL Advances if you are successful in your application. The only cost that you will need to bear is the flight to Nairobi (which is roughly £550 return from London).
