Description and Impact
One of our goals is to afford our students the necessary tools to develop a business plan, conduct market research, and execute their project. We do this to stimulate the local economy as well as community development in their hometowns. We need someone with experience in entrepreneurship and/or working with rural populations in community development projects.
With the help of this Experteer, we hope to inspire more students with the micro-enterprise portion of our project, aid them with tips and knowledge necessary to persevere (and be successful!), and positively influence their future.
The Experteer will act as a business coach guiding our students through the process of creating a business process, giving them feedback and helping brainstorm new business ideas.
We are currently working in 8 different communities so we're looking for 8 Experteers!
At the end of the process, we hope that by working with the Experteer, the following will happen:
- Students eager to participate in creating and running small businesses.
- Students who are not afraid to think outside the box and explore different business avenues.
- Students with enhanced problem solving and creative and critical thinking skills.
- 1 successful business venture per community.
Our ideal candidate is an independent, self driven professional, with a strong interest in entrepreneurship and prior experience working with teenagers. He or she must be willing to step out of their comfort zone and comfortable living in impoverished rural areas.
