ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS
Entrepreneurship is the embodiment of all the actions, attributes and activities of entrepreneurs. Put differently, it is an articulated intuitive process of anticipating, recognizing, evaluating and exploiting productive ventures with a view to make profit. Such ventures ultimately result in the production of goods and services that satisfy societal needs, desires and aspirations. Entrepreneurship could therefore be defined as a form of scientific, socio-cultural, technological, economic or political breakthrough and transformation. Entrepreneurs are pivotal in driving economic growth and creating employment. They are also recognized as sources of innovation and new ideas and most specifically as ‘agents’ that foster competitiveness and productivity within the global economy.
Our corporate team, Time & Talents, organizes programmes that match business employees with local charities to carry out projects to benefit the African communities. IF YOU WANT TO HELP During the pandemic and ensuing lockdowns, a tremendous number of people helped out in their local communities. Now that restrictions are lifted, employee volunteers are needed more that ever to help charities get up and fully running again. And your organisation can volunteer to help run group activities that encourage the most isolated residents to reconnect locally and readjust to the new normal. If you prefer your organisation to get involved remotely, just a few hours of your employees' time can provide crucial support to all types of voluntary groups and organizations and help the most vulnerable in the community. They could be training charity staff, helping with media/marketing, providing web and IT solutions, financial accounts, taking up advisory roles, joining the board of trustees, or setting up fundraising campaigns. If you are keen for your organisation to volunteer remotely or in person, please contact us
