"Entrepreneurship is about turning what excites you in life into capital so that you can do more of it and move forward with it"

Entrepreneurship is not just a career, it's a mindset that can be cultivated from a young age. By instilling entrepreneurship skills in students, we can help create a generation of innovators who can not only think outside the box but also come up with viable business ideas that can positively impact their communities and the world at large.

There are many examples of successful entrepreneurs who started with nothing but an idea and turned it into a thriving business. Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Elon Musk are just a few of the many entrepreneurs who have made a huge impact on the world through their businesses. Each of these entrepreneurs had different skill sets, but they all shared a common trait - the ability to identify a problem and find a profitable solution for it.

The Young Entrepreneurs School is doing an exceptional job of fostering entrepreneurship skills among students. The school's curriculum is designed to help students develop a growth mindset, critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills - all crucial skills for any entrepreneur. DCM YES also provides students with access to business mentors and opportunities to pitch their business ideas to investors.

One of the unique things about DCM YES is that it encourages students to start their own ventures while still in school. This helps students gain valuable real-world experience and teaches them how to navigate the challenges of starting and running a business. By starting their own ventures, students also learn the value of hard work, persistence, and resilience - skills that are essential for any entrepreneur.

In addition to the curriculum and mentorship programs, YES School also hosts entrepreneurship boot camps and workshops to help students learn more about entrepreneurship and how to develop their business ideas. These camps and workshops provide students with hands-on experience and a chance to network with other young entrepreneurs.

At Yes, we also have an equipped Entrepreneurship Development Centre ( EDC) that is dedicated to the ideation, incubation, and training of students in entrepreneurship. The center is staffed with specialized educators who have years of experience in teaching and mentoring aspiring entrepreneurs. Through workshops, training sessions, and one-on-one mentorship, students can develop their business ideas and hone their entrepreneurial skills to bring their ideas to fruition. The Entrepreneurship Development Centre is an integral part of our commitment to fostering entrepreneurship skills and creating a supportive ecosystem that empowers students to turn their ideas into successful ventures.

The Young Entrepreneurs School also places a strong emphasis on the importance of financial literacy and management for aspiring entrepreneurs. Through workshops and seminars, students learn how to manage their finances effectively and make smart financial decisions for their businesses.

Entrepreneurship skills are essential for the success of any business, and instilling these skills in students from a young age can have a positive impact on their future. DCM YES School is doing a remarkable job of instilling entrepreneurship skills in students, equipping them with the necessary tools and resources to tackle the challenges and opportunities of the future. In doing so, the school is cultivating a new breed of innovative thinkers and problem-solvers who can effect positive change in the world.
