Before joining Itzinya, I did not have expectations or goals. I went with a mind-set of learning and experiencing, wanting to experience what it was all about. But Itzinya has helped me, especially in shifting my perspective from one of an NGO worker to that of an entrepreneur.
Itzinya is accessible for everybody, all ages, all backgrounds. I would especially recommend Itzinya to you if you do not have a business background at all. The course really encourages people to explore and enter the business world, especially if they do not share any connection with it. Itzinya is not just a general course about initiating a start-up, but also revolves around providing practical information on what it takes to make a business stable in the Netherlands. Furthermore, Itzinya also assists you to contact potential partners who would like to invest in your business.
The facilitators help develop the business ideas and follow up on each person’s idea development individually. Even after graduation, the facilitators have been following up with us. This means that once you join Itzinya, you are accompanied from the beginning of the course until you launch your business. The group that took the course was very friendly as well and we keep in touch and from time to time see how each of us are doing.
