The YES Bootcamp is a FREE intensive 2-day workshop in Lagos, Nairobi, Cape Town and Johannesburg where SME co-founders and leaders are trained on the practical ingredients for scaling their businesses.
It is a unique platform for large corporations to connect with a pool of SMEs, share knowledge and acquire new channel partners and/or customers.
The YES Bootcamp is curated with a world-class curriculum and learning experience to uplift the perspective of the participants about the possibilities of scaling their businesses. It is focused on blended learning provided by experienced leaders. It consists of concepts, practical workshops, assessments, guest symposiums, etc. Our approach is for all participants to learn by doing.
We will teach and use the THNK Venture Design elements to identify scale-up areas each participating company will focus on. By discussing and working on these interrelated elements such as the What, How, Who and Why, participants are able to demystify what it takes for them to scale. Clarity of purpose and strategy is accomplished.
We are working with several partners who play significant roles in various industries. The Industry Technology sessions brings these experts to discuss the dynamics of their industry and how best the bootcamp participants can navigate and win in these industries. Solution Demo Desks will also be available for participants to try out cool tools and solutions from our partners.
Let's hear it from the horse's mouth! We will have a fire-side chat with an entrepreneur who successfully scaled his business from scratch. Participants will be free to ask any questions that is on their mind. Especially about the struggles they face day-to-day and how they can overcome them.
On the eve of the second day of the bootcamp, we will have an informal cocktail that brings together 150 people (participants, partners, supporters, mentors, leaders, etc.) to network and experience a wonderful evening. We have some side attractions, so stay tuned!
