“Butterfly Fields, Hyderabad in association with BizSmart Global, USA will help to organise a unique management and entrepreneurial workshop for students in the age group 11-17 at ISB Hyderabad from June 4 to 9, 2012.
Aimed at providing an early exposure to students, this workshop will teach essential entrepreneurial skills including financial analysis, brainstorming, leadership, collaborative teamwork, competitive analysis, design thinking and public speaking. Real life projects from companies will be used at the workshop and the student teams will analyze them and come up with entrepreneurial business plans. There will be graduation certificates for all the participants and awards for the winners in this project-based competition for school students. Bryan Cockel, (BizSmart Global) Curriculum Director, (Camp BizSmart) Stanford Camp will be in Hyderabad to conduct the workshop.
At the Workshop the students will learn the secrets of Apple CEO Steve Jobs, practice negotiation, problem solving, finance, develop creative thinking and public speaking skills, innovate or improvise products for real life companies and pitch business plans to real investors.
(Geeta Ajmera, Director of Student Admissions and Logistics for BizSmart Global India will welcome visiting company executives and students to the BizSmart Global Budding Entrepreneur Program.)
During the Workshop, the selected students will be divided into teams, which will work on live projects over the course of the workshop. Teams will come up with their ‘business plans’ with the help of facilitators and workshop faculty. These will then be presented, on the final day, to the jury for judging and selecting the winners.
One enrolled student will win a full tuition (scholarship) to attend Camp BizSmart, USA (the sister organization of BizSmart Global), at Stanford University.
