Time is running out to enter your business in Scooler. Young school going entrepreneurs have been clamouring to showcase and pitch their businesses and time is running out if you still want to stand the chance of winning. Following the launch of Scooler | The School Entrepreneur Movement and the subsequent Scooler R100k Clash in August, this entrepreneurial opportunity for school goers has been met with great success, amassing a phenomenal 500 entries in the first two weeks. With Global Entrepreneurial Week coming up in November when the winners will be announced, students are clamouring to pitch their cool, existing money making ventures, hobbies and businesses “an encouraging sign and further confirmation of the absolute necessity to create and instil an entrepreneurial spirit in our schools,” according to founder of Scooler, Leon Lategan.
The movement provides a platform for students at school to start asking vital questions about alternatives to mainstream tertiary education. On the website and via social media platforms, students have access to valuable information about how to run a business; how to secure funding for their business; connection to like minded youth and exposure of their existing school businesses or money making initiatives to the community, corporates and investors. To create awareness about Scooler, The R100k Scooler Clash was launched on August 22, calling on all Grade Eight, Nine, 10, 11 and 12 learners to enter, free of charge, battle it out to win R100 000 for the best existing business or money making initiative currently run by a student at school.
