Green Entrepreneurship Recruitment
Are you interested in the concept of green entrepreneurship?
Are you involved in entrepreneurship education?
Do you want to participate in the effort of promoting green entrepreneurship?
Join BELL Green Entrepreneurship Advisor Training Camp! An entrepreneurship training program formed in the context of globalization, our course is based on the most pioneering green entrepreneurship vision and the most hands-on method of applying theory into practice. Most importantly, there are a group of peers who share the same goal eager to work toward the same dream.
Why are we organizing this training camp?
As green entrepreneurship receives more and more attention, it is important that "green entrepreneurship" does not remain simply a term spotted in internet articles, public discussions, or daily conversations. Instead, it is more necessary to apply the concepts into real life start-up projects. We recognize that power of individuals is not enough to accomplish this arduous task. Only through the joint effort of experts with the same vision and passion can we reach our objective. Furthermore, we are committed to the training aspect of entrepreneurship because we realize the need of potential young entrepreneurs for guidance and counsel.
