Entrepreneurship is the new charger for economies across the world. Oya Inc has been promoting entrepreneurship ever since it introduced its first venture—Oya Opportunities by providing information on various events related to entrepreneurship from all over the world.
It was in 2017 that Oya Inc realized need of an intensive program dedicated to brewing up young entrepreneurs from across the globe since most of the events on entrepreneurship at that time were dedicated to existing entrepreneurs rather than creating new ones. Giving the realization a form of event, Oya Inc designed and organized the Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp (GEB) from September 2nd to 4th, 2017 in Kakani, Nepal.
Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp was introduced as a 4-day educational/leadership session designed for the youth. GEB brought together many young innovative minds from around the world and placed them on a common platform to innovate and create new businesses through collaboration. The primary aim of GEB was to provide participants an overwhelming lifetime experience to develop the necessary entrepreneurial skills to start their own venture. GEB became the platform to interact with mentors, successful entrepreneurs who are willing to hear what budding entrepreneurs are thinking of and guide them on the right path to making a successful startup.
The success of the first edition of the bootcamp led to the second edition being organized in Bangkok, Thailand from January 15th to 18th, 2018. Likewise, the third Bootcamp was hosted around 160 participants from 35 different countries in Jakarta, Indonesia from 2nd to 5th July, 2018.
GEB has grown successively in the second and third editions. The event has grown from an educational and leadership session on entrepreneurship to a bridge connecting the innovative minds and global investors by the third edition. In each successive edition, GEB has constantly updated and revised its format in order to make it simpler for young minds, keeping its originality unharmed.
Oya Inc is organizing the fourth edition of GEB in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 17th to 20th December, 2018.
In the three editions of the GEB, delegates from more than 50 different countries were welcomed. Oya Inc has focused on imparting entrepreneurial education through the GEB, with special emphasis on Asian and African countries where entrepreneurship is just a new term.
