New Ventures Studio is a young entrepreneur accelerator. It is a platform for young individuals who want to be successful entrepreneurs, but realize the importance of up-skilling themselves before venturing out into the unfamiliar territory of entrepreneurship. In partnership with young entrepreneurs (16 to 35), we create wealth by developing entrepreneurial skills, strategic networks and fully capitalized operational businesses.
Applications are open to all 16 - 35 year-old aspiring entrepreneurs, regardless of whether they have a business or not – submissions can be done online at www.newventuresstudio.co.za.
Why it started?
The brainchild of Salesian Life Choices (an organisation investing in youth to tackle inequality) and Caban Investments, New Ventures Studio came to life through a desire to refresh the failing NPO business model. The nature of this partnership creates an ecosystem whereby the entrepreneur’s success is the cornerstone for everyone’s profit. “We nearly shut down in 2013. It became very difficult to secure funding with the global economy in such crisis so it became clear we needed to change our model in order to generate income.” Sofia Neves (MD of Salesian Life Choices)
