What is GoFor10?
GoFor10 is an education and coaching platform. We recognised that there were many challenges facing the world and one of the main reasons was that people were using information not suited for our modern world. We needed to create an education system for the new way of living.
Why organise an innovation challenge for Teens?
It is vital that innovators and entrepreneurs think about how society can meet the Global challenges. GoFor10 believes that with all the technological and educational tools available today, young innovators and entrepreneurs may be better positioned to solve these challenges than any previous generation has been.
The participants of our 2019 Money and Business Camp for Teens developed many business ideas that are required/implemented today.
"I am a business student of St. Benedict's College. Being a business student, this money and entrepreneurship camp was suggested by my mother as a way to gain practical insight and knowledge of effectively using money and running a successful business. I learnt how to prioritise my vision by setting goals, budgeting, investing, different investment opportunities such as real estate, stocks, etc, production, believing in my product and branding. As I went forward I learnt how essential it is to implement a positive mindset to help me to be creative, to read more to gain knowledge and the importance of deadlines. I suggest to any of my peers that they ask their parents to allow them the opportunity afforded to me by my parents because it was a great experience."
"If I had to describe this camp in one word, it would be ‘enlightening’. Considering that I’ve been studying business since Form 4 and I’m now in Upper 6, I was unsure about if I’d be learning things which I didn’t already know. Now, after the camp is finished, I can undoubtedly say I learnt new concepts and ideas everyday. Things that connected the theory I studied in school to real life business situations. It was a plus that Mr. Ram is very experienced in the corporate world and also introduced us to other very successful people in business. In addition, the activities which we had to complete as teams were incredibly enjoyable and strengthened the bond of the entire class. I’m incredibly grateful for the knowledge imparted on us."
