__Who will work for me in January?
Next week we’ll finally launch the competition to choose two people who will be the inaugural Kwesé Entrepreneur Fellows. Working from the Kwesé offices in Johannesburg, they’ll win an opportunity to interact with me and some of my team on a daily basis.
These two people (one of whom must be a woman) will also be given an opportunity to pitch for a $100,000 investment into their idea (business or social).
(We hoped to get started earlier this year, but putting together a process has not been easy because we’ve all been very busy!)
Anyway, in preparation let me tell the people who are interested in participating, they must appreciate that it will be a very rigorous process!
Anyone can win (they don’t have to be university graduates or highly educated, or even have an existing enterprise of their own). We are interested in someone who is very hard working, methodical and diligent.
The eventual two winners will be selected by followers on this platform acting as a “Shark Tank” type panel, who will then (like investors) vote for whom they think I should give $100,000.
Contestants will be taken through a two-stage process in which they must show complete knowledge about Kwesé services, based on what I have said about them, and what is on all our websites. They will need to have a very good understanding of Kwesé programming. You don’t have to own a decoder to have such knowledge as all the information is on our websites and Apps.
If a participant gets to Stage Two by passing the programming test (a series of four quizzes over several weeks) then they will then be required to prepare a pitch on their own business or social enterprise in a short video.
If you or someone you know is interested, they can begin right away to prepare for Stage One. The information on the quizzes is available to those who can study and answer questions (which will be posted regarding on knowledge from these three websites and apps):
People who have Kwesé decoders can also participate in this competition by going to the Kwese.com website where the questions will be posted.
# Remember anyone can answer these questions. You don’t have to be in Africa to participate. You can attempt from anywhere in the world. And if you win, we will bring you to Africa!
We will pay the full cost of tickets and accommodation during the two week stay with our organization.
Let the battle begin!
