Strivers has directly recruited four luminaries of the Ugandan business world to act as inspirational mentors. They are invited to come in tell their story, give advice and answer student questions. They understand what is required for large-scale success in the unique economic climate of Uganda.
Strivers has made the resources of Uganda's most prestigious university available to the students by engaging members of the department of economics and management. These people help craft the Strivers curriculum to make it relevant to Ugandan students.
A mix of Ugandans who own their own businesses and have experience as entrepreneurial educators. They help students convert their passions to realistic business plans drawing upon their own life experience. These people teach portions of the curriculum. They can commit greater time from their lives to interacting with students and take on a mentor roll. This relationship, combined with greater similarity with age and background to the students, allows them to give advice on a broader range of issues including providing council to students on dealing with the societal pressures they will face. They can also connect students with their web of contacts giving them the introductions they need to succeed.
The most important networking resource are the Strivers students. Students are recruited from divers areas of Uganda and are brought together in a single classroom. This gives them all exposure to different styles of speaking and conducting business as well as connections all over the country, which they can draw from during future endeavors.
