Britus Education Partners with IvyPlus Network to Present Online Summer Program

Manama – June 29, 2020 – Britus Education, a K-12 education platform designed to take advantage of value opportunities in the fragmented trillion dollar global private education industry, today announced its partnership with IvyPlus Network, a professional network of alumni from the top global universities for Ivy Young Entrepreneur, an online summer programme for 13-18 year olds from Bahrain & UAE from July 12-26 2020.

This online program is the first of its kind in Bahrain with a rigorous selection process. Through the program, students will learn how to identify innovative opportunities and develop business plans around them. A highlight for the program is pitch day, when students would be presenting their ideas to a jury of successful entrepreneurs and investors and one team would be selected as a winner. The program’s objective is for students to learn entrepreneurial skills such as how to be resilient, work in teams, communicate, lead and think strategically. Students selected for this summer program will also have a unique opportunity to attend a session on “How to Prepare for the Top 50 Global Universities” during the program.

Commenting on the announcement, Mr. Mark Whitfield, Education Director of Britus Education, said, “We aspire for our students to be enterprising learners, advanced performers, empathetic leaders and high achievers who go on to attend the best universities, secure the best jobs and become the leaders of the future. The partnership with IvyPlus aligns beautifully with this aspiration and we look forward to our students benefitting from this innovative programme.”

Commenting on the announcement, Ms. Swati Sahni, Founder & CEO of IvyPlus Network, said, “I am extremely excited for students from Bahrain and UAE to experience the Ivy Young Entrepreneur summer program. COVID-19 has been an unprecedented moment in history, one that has brought uncertainty to all our lives. Going ahead, it would be important for every student to learn entrepreneurial skills, as conventional jobs get disrupted. The ability to examine problems, think of innovative solutions, and execute an idea efficiently will help them differentiate themselves from others. This new world we are entering requires a new version of us and I believe our program will help students get there.”
