The founder school series connects young people with successful entrepreneurs and passes on important skills to prepare them for the future of work
Founder has been run with over 25,000 young people across the country with incredible results. Over a day the Project Gen Z entrepreneurs take students through 'The Apprentice' business challenge that sees students go head to head to build and launch a mini business.
It's fun, fast paced and will throw students out of their comfort zone. A great workshop to practice a growth mindset!
Students hear from real entrepreneurs, how they navigated life after school, overcame obstacles and found their passion.
Students learn step by step how to start a business direct from those that have been there, done that.
Students split into teams to take part in ‘The Apprentice Challenge’ where they go head to head to solve a problem and launch their own mini business. The teams build a marketing campaign, film and edit a 30 sec TV commercial and then battle it out in a live ‘pitch off’ competition in front of the Project Gen Z judges.
