RealAcad Venture Management Program

Each year RealAcad Venture Management Program carefully selects top students and young professionals from around the world to take part in a one week camp with an international team of leading entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and top management consultants.

RealAcad's mission is to "train every future global leader." One of the ways it connects to these leaders is by making scholarship funds available to select organizations whose members are accepted into the program.

RealAcad has decided to provide a USD500 discount for ReComers who are interested to take part. If you are interested to take part, do let me know, so that I can submit your name to them.

For more info, go to RealAcad .

Personally, it seems very beneficial. The only thing is that it is quite costly. USD2,750 for a week of program or USD4,000 for 2 weeks of program. Even with USD500 of discount, that's still USD2,250 for a week of program or USD3,500 for 2 weeks of program.

But looking at the credentials of the trainers, it might be worth it. 2 Malaysians have been there. Goh Jing Pei and Chong Joon Chye. As of now, 107 people have been to the camp or are faculty there! You can have your face here too!

Do look at the credentials of the advisors and trainers too! here

Would encourage any of my blog readers to share with me any event that you come across. As long as the event/activity/initiative is education/charity/youth oriented and is not-for-profit, I would be more than happy to post it to share!
