What's this all about?

This is our Fifth year running the Venturist Entrepreneurship  Camp.  The camp is brought to you by   Khalifa Fund for Enterprise Development with the aim to provide a high quality business camp that encourages the youth of the UAE to think outside the box, work collaboratively with their 'colleagues' and produce  innovative ideas that serve global demands and interests... and of course to have fun!

Each day will start with an introductory session with all students which will cover a new topic, recap the previous day, or introduce a special guest.  After a short break our entrepreneurs are then divided into their teams with a specialist tutor for support to work in small groups on their chosen business idea.
