On February 6-7-8, the candidates gathered for their third module in Zurich, Switzerland. Together with their tandem partners in Cambodia, they have developed a new business model to bring education to remote villages by means of SuitePad tablets. 

So far, children have to walk or to ride bicycle for 10km to go to learn. Thanks to a new social enterprise, a local entrepreneur will drive teachers and tablets with content in English and Khmer to the villagers of Takeo province.

This is one more significant step forward to implement BOOKBRIDGE Vision to give access to quality education to all.

During Module 3 of the Capability Program, candidates grew together as a team and pitched successfully their business plan to investors Moritz Von Petersdorff (CEO of SuitePad) and Robert Maier (Founder of Visual Meta). The two investors gave their GO to create a new social enterprise in mobile education.

With Business Coach Joanna Hafenmayer, the team prepared the next steps for the implementation, including the recommendations of their investors. The third day was about individual and collective leadership, facilitated by Leadership Coach Dr. Heike Rudolf von Rohr.

In March 2015, the Team of the 5th Capability Program  will fly to Cambodia to implement the business model and launch the new concept in Takeo Province, in-between Kadet’s learning center and Sokoeurn’s learning center.

We will keep you update on their adventures!
