Apart from Work Attachments with a company, you can also choose to embark on an entrepreneurial journey with us and start your Entrepreneurial Work Attachment (E-WA). Similar to work attachments with a company, this will be a guided process over 6 months with a Work Attachment supervisor.
To apply for the E-WA, applicants are required to attend an interview and/or make a pitch to determine their readiness and suitability for the E-WA.
The application should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org and comprise of:
- One-page Business Overview (Lean Business Model Canvas or similar)
A clear overview of the problem and solution statement, unique value proposition, customer segments and market size, marketing strategy, revenue streams and cost structure.
- Business Pitch Deck
Including more contextual information about the business the student is building, and why it has the potential to succeed
- 6-month milestones
The next 6-month milestones plan shall serve as an overview of the student’s work during the course of the E-WA. The starting date of the Plan shall be the starting date of the E-WA.
- Team Background
No business is done without support. The student shall provide information on team members and external mentors.
Students are also strongly encouraged to propose a mentor as their WA supervisor. The mentor could be part of an external incubator or accelerator programme that the student has been accepted in or an industry expert.
