The last phase of AKE program is in full swing and participants are busy building their own ventures (start-ups), fine tuning their offerings and value propositions.
Yesterday they pitch their ideas to an invited panel that gave them feedback. All these activities are helping AKE developed the curriculum and objectives for this last phase.
Today we want to share some of the props we have been receiving from AKE start ups:
Nancy and Olipha comment: “it is challenging making them, however the biggest challenge so far for us is building our customer base” (Boisch team).
Maurice comments: “we (Artari Kreations) discovered the necessity for digitizing our curriculum and i decided to engage kindergarten kids to collect suggestions on what they could require to interact with and learn from, when it comes to digital learning.” (Artari Kreations Team)
Kahama comments: [Referring to the comments they leave to each other in the code]: “commenting is good when done well, it makes work easy for every body in the team” (Artari Kreations Team)
Also GESCI’s team in charge of AKE has been reflecting on the opportunities and challenges of the program itself. Victos. AKE’s manager also shares some insights:
Victor when talking about the most challenging thing so far: “I still manage to have fun with all the work… but would have done with an assistant” and when prompted to point out at the most inspiring “when the start up groups are working on projects in a team”.
