You might be wondering how the first day of our business game at ICT4D went. Thanks to Renalda and her intensive promotional campaign for our entrepreneurship project, and of course the help of Close the Gap (they paid the cost for the course), we could welcome 28 enthusiastic students to our classroom (full house!).
Renalda first introduced her team and welcomed us:
After that, we kicked off our first session and explained the students how to create a project card for their idea (title and definition of their idea, what kind of solution they offer to customers and what impact their idea will have on society and/or the environment, the advantages and disadvantages of the idea, the parties that they require to work with and the cost and revenue streams).
After that they started working on their project card:
In the afternoon the different groups presented their project ideas:
After a full day of presentations we went home with our heads full of ideas :), we were all exhausted but very happy about the result! In the evening we discussed the different project ideas and their feasibility so we could focus the next day on 6 projects that the students can work on in groups. We also did a short questionnaire to get an idea of the student’s expectations and adapted our courses (the level the students is really high!).
We’re looking forward to the next days to see the different projects take shape!
Kwa heri (bye)!
