Can you spare 12 months? If so, then you are on your way to having a solid foundation that can stand the test of time. A year may be looking so much to give but it’s a sacrifice that will pay off. The opportunity for MEST’s fully sponsored program is here and I don’t expect you to dull. Just read on!
What is MEST Training Program?
It’s a one year scholarship program, fully funded, targeted at raising entrepreneurs in business, communications and software development.
The amazing part is that the training is for individuals starting at graduate-level, who are expected to complete the full time course being offered by MEST within the space of a year.
After the rigorous Entrepreneurs-in-Training (EITs) classes [as the program is also called] and those who enrolled must have gone through extensive hands-on project work, they form a team; finally pitches and successful ones will receive seed funding. Afterwards, they are moved into MEST incubator.
No excuse from you. Don’t plan to enroll later. Do it now by clicking the link below.
