"Starting your own business is like riding a roller coaster. There are highs and lows and every turn you take is another twist. The lows are really low, but the highs can be really high. You have to be strong, keep your stomach tight, and ride along with the roller coaster that you started."-
Lindsay Manseau, photographer and entrepreneur
CREATE, COMMUNICATE AND IMPLEMENT YOUR SKILLS, TALENTS AND IDEAS FOR ENTERPRISE AND PROFESSIONAL GROWTH.
In-Light-of is an Enterprise Course for students, local businesses and individuals who aspire to enhance their professional skills and potentially start a new enterprise.
The ILO Course will give you the opportunity to put your entrepreneurial abilities to practice via assigned projects, workshops, talks, mentoring and networking.
The Course consists of six sessions and a pitch day.
Who is the ILO Course for?
ILO offers practical skills workshops to students (both undergraduate and postgraduate) and businesses and individuals who want to acquire additional professional experience in the following areas:
- CREATIVITY AND IDEATION
- COMMUNICATION AND BRANDING
- LEGAL STRUCTURES AND AGILE BUSINESS MODELS
- IMPLEMENTATION OF ENTERPRISE
- BUSINESS PLANNING
The learning outcomes and benefits of taking part in ILO are relevant whether you want to establish your own start-up, develop your enterprise or enhance your professional and employability skills.
The Programme is designed in such a way that the skills learnt can be applied across all industries, to new enterprises and existing businesses, where innovation, far-reaching thinking, agility, creativity, and confidence are in high demand.
On the completion of the ILO Programme, participants will have an evidenced, project-based story illustrating their own development journey: starting from expressing who they are as both; individuals and professionals, to communicating their values and ideas in professional settings, to the implementation and evaluation of viability of an enterprise via appropriate methods and pitching.
BETA graduates are enterprise-ready and sought after by employers. They respond positively to professional challenges with unprecedented solutions, agility, creativity, courage, curiosity and responsibility.
Reinforced with the same principles of sustainability and inclusivity that apply across all Futures activities, ILO results will always connect with good growth, diversity and socio-environmental benefits.
