As a social enterprise that exists to develop subsidiary social enterprises, Project Everest Venture’s value to communities is in its ability to finance early-stage solutions and to train junior consultants (students) to efficiently allocate that finance.
Following the completion of pre-departure training and ongoing social entrepreneurship training from your team leader, you are given the authority to develop your project in country to target whatever community need you identify. Further, you have the ability to provide the community any solution or group of solutions that you investigate and develop.
You bring with you any prior project or teamwork experience coupled with your degree-specific education. Your most important asset is your ability to think outside the box. You have not been ingrained with a traditional problem-solving philosophy from a professional career and can, therefore, develop solutions within communities with a fresh perspective.
