The Program's Q&As
- After the lessons, is there hope for employment?
- There is always hope! Traditionally, Friends Of CNM extends job offers to 2 graduates out of 100 participants. We target that 3 more will start their enterprises. The others will get education and valuable experience not only at no cost, but also being paid.
- How many students are we supposed to be? Is there room for more?
- The Program depends on two sources of revenue: (a) recruiter fees from one venture capital group and (b) donors. In the worst case scenario, if Friends Of CNM secure no donor, the Program needs about 100 new participants each month in order to be financially sustainable.
- How long am I supposed to take the lessons?
- You are not supposed to do anything. If you don't enjoy being involved, any result is problematic.
