Meet this week awesome studentpreneur: Mohammed Fawaz, 22 years old, student in Business Information Management system at Middlesex University, London and founder of Global Tutors in Sri Lanka.
Each studentpreneurs’ story is different and what works for some people doesn’t for others, however I’d like to point out of few things in Mohammed Fawaz’s journey that are similar to the studentpreneurs I studied in my research:
He embraced networking from very early on and subsequently met several influential people, including two mentors who even ended up investing in his business. There is no particular skills for networking, everyone can learn it, Fawase was a mathematic student in High School and he had no problem networking! He leverages his network for learning as he learns from his environment. Finally he increased his network globally by attending the Global Student Entrepreneur Award competition. Once again, there was no local competition in Sri Lanka but he reached out anyway to the organisation and ended up having an incredible time with the 35 GSEA finalists, all like minded people from across the globe. You can do it too, go visit GSEA.ORG and enroll in your local competition!
