My name is Panashe Madzudzo, I am a passionate teenage developer and entrepreneur who got the amazing opportunity of being accepted into this years MIT LaunchX Summer Program.
LaunchX’s program taps into the potential of ambitious high school students, supporting them through the process of launching an actual startup. Promising young entrepreneurs from around the globe learn from our curriculum and industry experts to solve real business challenges.
The objective of LaunchX is to improve student real-world success. In order to achieve
this objective, students that are part of LaunchX:
● Develop an entrepreneurial mindset — initiative, grit, confidence, resourcefulness
● Learn tangible, practical business skills, and
● Explore entrepreneurship as a career path
All of this is accomplished through starting a real company.
LaunchX is not a business plan contest; the aim is to create an idea and make it real by
taking action, learning from the results, and making changes to improve your chances of
success.
Any assistance towards funding my travel costs is greatly appreciated.
