The Centre’s support to BizSkills Academy Inc.
Today, BizSkills Academy has not only participated in the center’s events as a beneficiary and as a speaker but also through the center’s support to local community and businesses’ strategic objective; BizSkills Academy has so far received eleven volunteer students from different programs at the Smith School of Business. the programs range from the Masters of International Business, the Masters of Management of Innovation and Entrepreneurship and the Executive MBA.
This Speaker Series event focused on ‘Global Platforms Creating Global Impact.’ It was a lunchtime session that featured two Smith School of Business alumni, Norman Musengimana, MMIE’18, Founder & CEO, BizSkills Academy Inc., and Rizma Butt, MMIE’17, Co-Founder & Project Manager Lead, 1 Million Teachers Inc. The keynote was delivered by social entrepreneur, Hayley Mundeva, Co-Founder & CEO, ThriveHire.
The event featured a panel discussion with Norman and Rizma. They both discussed what motivated them to venture into the social innovation in the education space, the challenges they encountered during this journey and still encounter, lesson they learned, and what new and potential entrepreneurs should be looking for as they seek to develop solutions to solve some of the big problems the world is facing today.
We are grateful for the support we continue to receive from the Centre for Social Impact, thank you!
