This is a short documentary film about the Young Entrepreneurs Program. The Young Entrepreneurs Program is based out of South Africa and is now expanding across the continent. The program helps entrepreneurs reach their business goals through mentorship. The top candidates are selected to travel to the United States and study at Sierra Nevada College for eight weeks. During this time they are paired with a Mentor in their related field. Then they return home and work on launching the business. Then the mentors from the United States travel to South Africa to check in with the students and visit the rest of the people in the program.

The program was originally funded by the US State Department, unfortunately the grant has ended. The program is looking for funding. Please contact Tahoe Creative if you are interested in funding the program. So far it has created 7,000 jobs in South Africa.
