Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.
We publish the Icon Magazine, hold experiential learning sessions, and host the Annual Icon Entrepreneurs Forum, reaching 900 people annually. This platform empowers entrepreneurs with foundational information for businesses to thrive. The forum bridges the gap between novices and experts, builds entrepreneurship capacity, fosters experiential learning, and stimulates the potential of individuals to transform their lives and communities they live in through starting and growing feasible initiatives.
Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.
To date, we have produced 7 publications in both digital and print versions, we have over 700 subscribers for this magazine and with over 10,000 likes on Facebook in less than 15 months of our online presence and we expect the number to grow steadily. 3 people have started ventures after reading the Icon Magazine.
In the next 5 years, we plan that in addition to the magazine, the Icon Entrepreneurship Platform will progress into a teaching consortium, with demonstration farms, business incubation centre, and a fully-fledged experiential leaning centre giving entrepreneurial seminars and inspirational coaching services for life and business management skills.
Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?
We are working on partnering with government agencies for both subscription and support for this cause, notably ministry of education and sports in adding practical content to the syllabus and schools to make this magazine a part of students materials especially those studying entrepreneurship as a subject.
