Mashauri : developing tomorrow's entrepreneurs today
Mashauri's reason for being is to develop successful entrepreneurs around the globe.
Our primary thrust is in offering higher education institutions an entrepreneurial education platform that allows them to give their graduates an entrepreneurial mindset
The Mashauri Entrepreneurial Education platform and the Academy are based on 3 principles:
Experiential in nature:
Learning entrepreneurship must be done experientially and so our programmes are hands-on and practical. For instance, our flagship acceleration programme supports students launching a real business.
High completion rates:
Using advanced digital learning, gamification and engagement techniques, the majority of our students complete the programme in its entirety.
Online and blended:
Although our programmes are mainly online, we frequently blend them with offline activities such as mentor meetings, student labs, webinars, lectures and hackathons.
Why we exist
Just imagine ....
if every university student could develop an entrepreneurial mindset - regardless of their discipline
If universities could produce graduates who ...
viewed problems and risks as opportunities, believed in their own creativity and capacity for innovation, accepted failure as a valuable learning experience, demonstrated initiative, self-discipline and resilience, thrived in adopting new technologies to address today's issues.
That is our dream ...
that worldwide, each student be given the opportunity to embrace an entrepreneurial perspective through experiential education.
We achieve this through ...
assisting educators in producing 21st century graduates capable of driving their own careers - whether in new business creation, through social entrepreneurship, or even by becoming that most valuable of employee - an intrapreneur!
What we do
Mashauri provides an online entrepreneurial education platform to universities. Through this we support these institutions in producing graduates with an entrepreneurial mindset who are equipped to innovate in their own venture or as an employee.
Mashauri's flagship product is an online acceleration platform that teaches students entrepreneurial skills as they build a real venture.
The program can operate in a number of ways:
- As a stand-alone program
- As a capstone-type project that integrates with a classroom based entrepreneurial course
- As a solution that houses an entrepreneurial event (eg a hackathon) that allows for student selection, content capture and longevity after the event has ended.
