The Entrepreneurship Club
Entrepreneurship is embedded within learning for students of all grades at GEMS World Academy. One of the main opportunities for students to develop their entrepreneurial skills at the school is the GWA Entrepreneurship Club. This is an enrichment opportunity to help young people delve into the world of entrepreneurship and launch their own businesses.
The after school enrichment sessions help students develop their understanding of various fields within entrepreneurship ranging from marketing to finance. The topics covered include market research, customer acquisition, business model, finances, prototyping, marketing, and pitching. Students are mentored on their businesses by older peers, which helps foster a collaborative approach towards youth entrepreneurship.
At the end of the program, students are able to produce a pitch deck which explains their business idea. Students then present their idea to a panel of acclaimed entrepreneurs in a final event, which enables the GWA community to celebrate the work of our young entrepreneurs.
