“During the course of the Company Programme my view towards business and commerce overall has impacted my attitude in a positive way. An example of this is that since our idea was the first to be produced and available to the local market we had a large portion of the market share. This was shown in our sales at the beginning of the programme which were on the rise, as compared to a later stage of the programme where we had a smaller market share due to there being more products in the market, leading to a decrease in our sales. This has taught me that we should work together and stick to our business plan and our deadlines if we want to succeed.
My experience as a young entrepreneur was quite different from what I was used to. From a work point of view, I learned how to deal with our supplier. I, together with my team, pitched our business plan in front of the judges. I gained knowledge on how to talk with potential customers and sell the product. From a teamwork point of view, I was very delighted with how my team helped in the running of the business, as well as, how the workload was split[…].
Thank you for the wonderful experience you have given us and for being there to guide us.”
