Entrepreneurship is the process of starting a business or other organization. The entrepreneur develops a business model, acquires the human and other required resources, and is fully responsible for its success or failure. Entrepreneurship operates within an entrepreneurship ecosystem.

At Scope 4 Success we believe every person has the ability to create something new or add something of value to something that already exists. Similarly we believe in giving young people the skills to obtain jobs to provide for themselves and their families. We also believe it is a vital responsibility to help nurture creative minds and spirits.

Through this program you will gain the knowledge and expertise that will nurture your own ideas and make your ideas a reality. Through our program you will have a mentor that helps you through the process of what it takes to have an idea, and then turn that idea into a viable business by creating a strategy that will help you achieve your goals.




 
Innovative Minds
 
Growing up my family always pushed a wholly academic agenda however my love for sports was, and always will be, inextinguishable. My professional relationship with scope4success began in my final year of secondary school at Dulwich College, where Mike Speranza was hired to be the head basketball coach. Scope4success has mentored me on two different grounds: first of all in my athletic career and secondly Mike has continually instilled within me new entrepreneurial skills to build my business acumen at a young age.  

On the sporting front, Scope4success aided me in my attempts to attain an athletic scholarship to American Universities. The process was thorough and often tiring. Scope oversaw the process, ensuring that I was registered with the NCAA clearinghouse and helping me to create a recruiting video of me in action. Through Mike’s attention to detail and unwavering work ethic, I was offered a place at New York University, one of the top 30 universities in the world. Unfortunately, as things so often go in life, I was unable to attend NYU, instead enrolling at Edinburgh University (one of the top 20 universities in the world).  

 Moreover, being a part of Scope’s entrepreneurial program has provided me with new life and business skills that have come in constant use as I prepare to enter the working world after university. Soon after meeting Mike I was given the opportunity to have internship work at Scope4success, in which I was able to learn the ‘ins and outs’ of running a social enterprise whilst gaining valuable experience in the business world. Moreover Mike has nurtured my knowledge and creativity, giving me constant advice, which has led to the founding of a business that, along with my partner Terry Obeng, I will be launching soon.  

 Scope4success has continued to mentor me through my first term at university and has continued to forward both my athletic career, as I represent the university in football and basketball, and my business career through constant support and advice. Without scope4success and the work of Mike Speranza, there is no way I would be the person I am today.
