Zurich, Switzerland – The IFJ today announced the four winners of the first round of Venturekick, among them The Entrepreneurs' Ship. We would also like to congratulate the other three winners, namely AgriCircle, AirXCell and Aicue.
The projects have been evaluated by a panel of experts and investors based on the business potential demonstrated and the achievements made in business development.
It is particularly honorable for us having been chosen as a winner, because we are the only non-profit project among the winners. It is wonderful to see, that the Swiss startup support structures value both, for-profit and non-profit initiatives. The 10'000 CHF will be invested in four distinct areas. First, to strengthen our brand awareness by participating in various global entrepreneurship conferences, such as the World Entrepreneurship Forum, the Global Forum for Innovation and Entrepreneurship as well as the REE Europe. Second, this funding will help us continue our global market analysis on entrepreneurial support systems. Third, an initial project will be organized in collaboration with CIYDA, in order to establish workshops and courses in Zimbabwe. Finally, we will launch a social entrepreneur interview series. Part of this funding will also support us in this initiative.
Thanks again to the entire IFJ / Venturekick team for this great support.
The Entrepreneurs' Ship® is a non-profit organization to promote entrepreneurship as a viable career path.
