Micro-Tyco is the multi-award winning entrepreneurial training and employability skills programme, pioneered by WildHearts. The challenge produces inspired, entrepreneurial thinkers, who can execute their ideas in a team, within a competitive environment and who care about their impact on their local and global community.
100% of the money generated during the challenge is used by the WildHearts Foundation - a registered charity - to fund Microfinance across 40 developing countries. By becoming an entrepreneur, you can actually fund an entrepreneur. This helps poor, predominantly female micro-entrepreneurs across the developing world to launch businesses and work their own way out of poverty with dignity.
To date, over 40,000 people have taken part from schools, universities and businesses across 21 countries. All have benefited from the multi-award winning Micro-Tyco Method: from Yale, to street kids in Kabul, executives in Manhattan to Hong Kong.
Teams have 30 days to turn £1 seed capital into as much money as they can, with all profits going to support entrepreneurs in developing countries.
This year Barclays are teaming up with WildHearts to offer our own spin on this award-winning competition – and you and your team are invited to be part of it.
Together, you can do something momentous in February 2017.
