Selected Global Funzi Courses
Founder 101 is Funzi's flagship entrepreneurship course to promote inclusive entrepreneurship - for everyone, everywhere, to build the skills and growth mindset to become an entrepreneur, regardless of social, economic, or cultural background. The course delves into entrepreneurship from the different perspectives and roles of an entrepreneur, developing basic skills in product development, innovation, sales, marketing, finance, organization, management, and leadership.
Job-seeking skills are often taken for granted, but really, finding the perfect job is not often that easy. Through the Get that job course, participants learn basic skills related to the job-seeking process, including how to make a CV, fill in an application, prepare for an interview, and conduct yourself on the first days of the job. The course helps in building the right mindset and identifying personal strengths and potential skillsets to take the next steps on one’s career path.

Funzi Community & Ambassadors
The Funzi Community is built of online and offline communities of active learners who positively impact their surrounding real-life communities. Funzi mobile learning provides a seed of lifelong learning, and the Funzi Community enables these learners to come together. The Funzi Community is currently organized as Facebook groups - the aim is to build in more interactivity and peer-to-peer learning in the future.
Funzi Ambassadors are our most engaged users helping spread Funzi to their communities. Funzi Ambassadors play a major role in building peer-to-peer support networks and face-to-face communities to contribute towards building sustainable societies. The Funzi Community and Ambassador Program was piloted in Nigeria in 2016, and is currently running as voluntary grassroots initiatives in multiple African countries.
