Some chapters offer interactive activities, and the students, in groups, will progressively produce a business plan that can be downloaded at the end of the experience.

They will also have access to online mentoring, under the supervision of their mentor.

The experience is a mixture of classroom and home-based mentoring, and can last from a few days to several months, depending on the choices of the mentors and the Establishment manager.
