During GEW

Kid Entrepreneurs Need Opportunities (KENO) Foundation Inc. teaches leadership and life skills, trains, grows and nurtures businesses formed by young entrepreneurs world-wide. We believe that when young people have a real and applicable understanding of business principles, financial literacy, legacy wealth creation, and business stewardship, they can begin to eradicate poverty and can change the world for good.

For the past several years, KENO has sponsored a Billionaire Business Booot Camp exclusively for youth in the US. This year, we are expanding our program offering to select countries with an invitation to send a team of 10-14 (5-7 women and 5-7 men) talented youth to participate in the “Global Business Boot Camp”  (GBBC) as a part of Global Entrepreneurship Week activities being held in Atlanta, Georgia USA from November 17th-24th, 2013.

GBBC is a week long residential program that brings youth ages 16-25 together to learn life skills, leadership, business innovation, financial literacy, and career options. Through our partnership with the Allen Entrepreneurial Institute, participants are exposed to all levels of business leaders who mentor the participants and guide them through the week’s activities. Participants’ teams work together as a “company” while gaining knowledge from numerous guest speakers and volunteers. In addition, participants will be able to utilize and record their own business commercial in the Institute studio.

We look forward to offering this program to engage the youth from Botswana, South Africa, Trinidand and America who share the same potential and passions. Many are dreaming of starting their own business, some have already started a business, some are searching for career direction, while others are heading for college, or just eager to enter the workforce. The GBBC program is designed to give youth a big head start and empower them for economic sustainability! GBBC is an opportunity for engaged youth to meet, network and work with others who are eager to jumpstart their futures keeping in mind that we live in a global society where entrepreneurship and innovation can begin at any age.

US based youth who are unable to participate in the residential program will attend the KICK OFF Session on Monday, November 18th where KENO partners with Independent Universe to deliver an energy filled symposium with youth entrepreneurs sharing their expereiences in owning their own business. The kick off program is free to all participants and the residential program costs $4,200 per participant and includes accommodations, 3 meals per day, airport transfers, field trips and program fees. Airfare for each participant must be purchased separately.
