All Great Entrepreneurs Start Young!

Welcome to our Business School.

The Zoom in Business Schoolies Program is a structured 12 month online education program designed for young adults.

There are many schools and programs that teach you about the business ecosystem of marketing, sales, admin, delivery, team and so on. Our Schoolies Program will teach you about both the business ecosystem and ownership lifecycle, from starting up to winding up.

Our goal is to educate and empower you on the business of business in a meaningful way, using a collection of real stories, real experiences and real life lessons and activities educate and inspire the entrepreneur in you.  We aim to train and prepare you for the responsibilities involved in the governance and management of a business, just like you learn the road rules before you get behind the steering wheel of your car.

We are dedicated to delivering the program classes and events to ensure a positive social impact is felt by each and every one of you, in the hope that it will positively impact your lives and the communities you study, work or own businesses in - now and into the future.   

We also believe that money should not be a barrier to the development of our talented youth.  The scholarship program serves as a way to share our wisdom and knowledge to selected applicants on a pro bono basis.

In 2022, we are offering full scholarships to three (3) of the most motivated, ambitious and deserving young entrepreneurs. We support inclusion, equality and diversity in every context and irrespective of country, race, gender, sexuality or religion, we firmly believe everyone should have the same opportunity to fast track learning from our programs. We encourage you to apply!
