My name is Reuben Kabantiyok, I am from Nigeria. I have been admitted into the TrepCamp Advanced Program. I was opportune to be among 500 candidates selected from a pool of over 30,000 applicants from around the world to attend the 2018 TrepCamp Advanced Program. Based on the merit of my application, I received a 50% tuition scholarship to attend the program.
TrepCamp Advanced Program focuses in preparing aspiring entrepreneurs to acquire the right competencies as they embark on their entrepreneurial journey. The program uses a unique methodology based in the Entrepreneurial Competence Model, which is the methodological heart of TrepCamp. This training will equip potential high impact entrepreneurs selected from all over the world with requisite skills to be world-class entrepreneurs and advance in their chosen careers. Supported by industries experts, mentors and some organizations across Europe working towards finding solutions to pressing challenges of our world today, the program will be of value to me.
I am currently working on my start-up a project on the conversion of waste-to-wealth. This is a sustainable business as it contribute towards cleaner environment. I plan to involve young undergraduate and graduates in science and technology fields who are passionate about entrepreneurship and at the same time concern about how it affect the environments. I am strongly passionate about facilitating the collaboration of people with ideas and people with the skills required to bring ideas to life.
Following the admission, I have the opportunity to select from universities in the US to attend the 3-week program. I have selected to attend the program at Stanford University in July 8, 2018.This is a huge exciting opportunity for me as I will be afforded the rare chance to attend seminars with experts and leaders, learn about emerging technologies and eventually pitch my start-up to global investors and mentors.
However, although I have received a partial scholarship for the tuition, I am still required to fund my flights, meals, accommodation at the university and the remainder of my tuition amount, which is more than I can afford. I still require a total of $5,500 in order to take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity. To date, I have raised a total of $1,150.
Consequently, I wish to request for your support to travel to attend TrepCamp Advanced Program training.
Thank you as you contribute.
