An E-Entrepreneur is someone who understands the role of technology as an enabling service and applies this knowledge to design and implement solutions to meet demands and solve problems for enable individuals and business. This does not imply that an E-entrepreneur specialises in all aspects of web-related technologies, but rather that he/she has a solid understanding of those technologies, the ability to visualise ways in which it can provide solutions, and an understanding of how to outsource and coordinate the skills and knowledge of partners to develop and implement those solutions in meaningful and profitable ways to build and sustain a business.
The GradCampus Career Builder Programme for E-Entrepreneurship offers candidates the opportunity to enter the job market and earn a living by providing a range of services that are generally in high demand, especially for small and medium size businesses. Where large organisations often employ staff on a full-time basis to support their online services and corporate presence, most small and medium businesses choose to outsource those services.
14 of the courses in this programme specifically focus on E-entrepreneurship and general business principles and practices to prepare a student to not only offer web- and technology related services and solutions effectively, but also to establish, market and manage a small business as an entrepreneur – a comprehensive skill set that will stand our student in good stead when finding and crafting career opportunities and throughout his/her career. Crowd-source funding is included in the course as one avenue of possible business funding.
Who should enrol
School leavers and young graduates who have a keen interest in developing and offering web and online related services & solutions for a living, or just to get a good foothold in the world of work. The programme has a strong focus on entrepreneurship, but that does not mean that graduates in this programme are limited to starting and running their own businesses. Graduates may very well choose to seek regular employment in industry and will find that they have a deeper and wider understanding of the business world than most others who chose to specialise in only the technical aspects of e-business, as a result of the fairly comprehensive exposure their CBP offers, both on a personal and professional level.
Entry-level careers and roles in/as:
• Small business owner
• Digital Marketer
• Business coordinator
• Web development
• Online business solutions
• Digital transformation
• Small business management
• Social media administrator
A Matric pass and a good command of English are highly recommended for successful completion of the programme. You must also have regular access to the Internet via a computer or laptop - you will not be able to complete your work effectively from a cell phone.
Each Career Builder Programme consists of a number of courses, and each course consists of a number of sessions covering the different topics. A specific order is recommended for completing the courses in your programme. You are not required to complete them in that order, but it is highly recommended that you do, since you may need to apply what you have learned in one course in another course later on.
