Green Business College
Green Business College is a social enterprise located in South Africa. It is based on BOOKBRIDGE’s vision of empowering people to do what they really are. Christina Vestey and Dorah Marema, founders of Green Business College, attended our 2nd Global Entrepreneurship Program to learn more about setting up social businesses. On August 6, 2017 they made their dream come true by opening Green Business College to the people of their community.
Green Business College is a place where people learn to sustain themselves financially by developing green business products, ideas and skills. The aim is to recruit, train and develop aspiring ‘green entrepreneurs’ by engaging under-employed members of the community to learn new ‘green skills’. These will assist them to set up a sustainable, environmentally-friendly small business to generate a sustainable income for themselves and their families. By providing ongoing business coaching and mentor support as well as practical marketing and sales support by networking Green Business College creates prospective sales channels and markets where their students can sell their products or solutions.
