Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

We are seeking an expert business developer to assist with securing business around the world for our site. With the goal being to expand 25 cities, We would like this expert to help us win consulting projects from companies around the world, so we can raise the capital we need, and start forming the communities we want in these locations.

We believe that youth and young professionals in the developing world are educated academically and not socially. They graduate with high academic performances but are not able to communicate and accelerate in the workplace because of a lack of social skills. These young professionals also have a desire to meet likeminded professionals but lack forums to do so. We provide the platform that enables that.

With high youth unemployment and underemployment, our business approach allows companies to use CSR as a means of providing employment and stimulating entrepreneurship on a short term basis, that gives young people a chance to explore and stimulate their career path. Working with companies, we are able to facilitate opportunities that young professionals can facilitate such as screen printing or facilitation.

This project will improve our core competencies by identifying the markets we can enter and companies who can work with us. By doing so this project will help us find revenue channels that will give us the jobs, sponsorships and market access we need to keep the program alive and going strong.
