Well done TeamGEA!
1, September 2010 1 Comment
So today I had a de-briefing meeting with the wonderful Livity crew (big ups to Mark & Oyin particularly for all their hard work!) who we (The 4WD Foundation) worked with to create and deliver the Google Enterprise Apprenticeships Programme, which is now fondly known as #TeamGEA. Preparations for the next phase of GEA are already under way, very exciting stuff!
It was an absolute pleasure to work with and support 10 fantastically talented and motivated young entrepreneurs over such an intensive 3 week period.
Tangible outcomes for TeamGEA were a business plan, an elevator pitch and a polished business presentation that they presented to a panel of Dragons at Google HQ on Friday 13th August; an unlucky day for some but a wonderful day for us!
