20 Batswana Youth Entrepreneurs Selected To Attend Village Africa Bootcamp In SA. Market Players is a public benefit organization committed to reducing the failure rate of citizen owned businesses in Botswana. In line with our objective to develop local business owners into world class entrepreneurs, we have partnered with The Crystal Hub (TCH), a South African based entrepreneurship development organization to take twenty (20) youth and citizen entrepreneurs on an all expenses paid business excursion to Sandton, South Africa from 25th April to 1st May 2021.
The Village Africa Bootcamp (VAB) is a platform by The Crystal Hub that is geared to bringing African entrepreneurs together under one unified banner, aligning mindset and strategy to create an ecosystem that encourages collaboration and partnership across the continent. VAB aims to forge relationships with African countries with the intention of empowering entrepreneurs in the form of a boot-camp and other initiatives that will enable information sharing, collaborations and global strategic partnerships which will aid access to possible opportunities within the continent. In building this process TCH has selected five African countries being Botswana, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Ghana, and Eswatini.
