BE-BOLD is a sustainable platform
that enables and supports the pitching of innovative
ideas in a safe, experimental and experiential
learning environment.

Through an experiential learning process of educating the youth about entrepreneurship, we aim to establish an innovation culture on 40+ campuses in 2015/16 by hosting pitching as well as idea generation events and support the business or social business ideas so that they reach the market. Thereby increasing the successful commercialisation rate of business start-ups among the youth (our target group is 17-28 year olds and 75% black youths)
