  • This course was the best thing for Jean ... and I am very grateful because Course left him confident to carry out his thoughts, mainly To help his father and his family by improving our restaurant.
    Deise Neves (mother of student Jean Neves, age 13)
  • I had the best education opportunities growing up in the UK and yet I doubt that I would have been able to create and present a business plan as a fourteen year old like the students achieved.
    Steve Rimmer (ex-partner at KPMG UK and a member of the judging panel of projects)
  • Personally, I grew because now I know how to manage my own business and create a financial plan. I have more knowledge and maturity in new areas such as Marketing & Financial Management.
    Bruno Ferreira de Abreu, 29 years
