HSEN, engages young people as national and global change makers. Young learners/teenagers/the youth is at the heart of everything we do. We cultivate and promote an entrepreneurial spirit amongst high school learners across Ghana through interactive seminars, workshops, conferences and exhibitions.
HSEN, our core objective is to develop the youth to establish and run their own successful businesses as a career path. We develop one-on-one relationships with those learners who are part of the program and we are privileged to be able to share in their growth. Majority of them have improved self-confidence, and developed hope for the future. We learn as much from them as they learn from us!
The High School Entrepreneurs Network (HSEN) offers the following;
Workshops: Business idea generation workshops which are promoted under the banner, ‘#TeenMOGUL’. Teen Mogul is a series of networking opportunities which;
- Shares information about entrepreneurship and enterprise development with high school learners to encourage them to start their own businesses as a career path
- Inspires the youth by creating a platform for them to engage with entrepreneurs who have broken ground and are operating successful and sustainable businesses
- Links up with parents, teachers and other influencers in order for them to continually encourage the youth round entrepreneurship.
