Digital & Entrepreneurial Skills for the 21st Century
By: Charlie Wright
Zurich, Switzerland, 20 March 2018 – Global events platform, Eventerprise.com, this week announced the launch of EventerCamp, a full-stack digital and entrepreneurial boot camp that bridges the gap between formal education, or past work experience, and the expectations of a rapidly changing labour market.
According to Eventerprise co-founder, Birgit Thümecke, “The Fourth Industrial Revolution is in full swing, with new careers replacing old ones at an ever-increasing rate. It has become imperative for everyone to learn new skills in order to stay relevant in the modern job market. Unfortunately seminars and bridging courses are expensive and often offer outdated information and no real-world practical experience. Even traditional internship programmes don’t offer the fully immersive experience that novice job seekers require to be successful in their fledgling careers. That’s why we created EventerCamp so that participants can develop skills and insights that are relevant to the digital economy by working on go-to-market projects at an early-stage tech company”.
EventerCamp is offered in four formats to cater for different types of participants. EventerCamp Internships for Young Guns cater for students and recent graduates and offer exposure to the latest business disciplines, such as demand generation, revenue operations, programmatic advertising, and marketing automation, while EventerCamp Internships for PostGrads allow postgraduate students to hone their specialist knowledge into marketable skills by participating in high-level projects within the digital platform and SaaS spheres.
Professionals and executives who would like to either upskill within their current careers or want to make a complete career change and need exposure to new career options can participate in EventerCamp Executive. It has been structured to give them broad exposure to digital business development techniques and help them develop a better understanding of fast-growing business models within the platform economy, such as SaaS and market networks, by involving them in all aspects of the business.
EventerCamp Investor was created for investors, venture capitalists, and C-suite executives who would like to gain a deeper understanding of SaaS, digital platforms, and global startup best practices. It offers participants exposure to the inner workings of a global startup so that they may develop a better practical understanding of how the platform revolution is transforming industries such as the event industry, and in the process changing the way the world does business.
In the words of co-founder Charlie Wright, “Eventerprise has decided to offer an open invitation to international private investors, members of VC firms or family offices, and senior executives who would like to gain a deeper understanding of the day-to-day running of an early-stage SaaS startup. And where better to do that than at one of our global hubs – Cape Town, South Africa, voted the world’s best city in 2016.”
EventerCamp is open to all nationalities and takes place throughout the year at Eventerprise’s Cape Town hub, with plans for a US location in the pipeline. EventerCamp Internships are free-of-charge for qualifying students, recent graduates, and postgraduates, while the EventerCamp Executive and Investor programmes are offered at a competitive rate. More details can be found on the EventerCamp website.
