Champion School at a Glance
UPG is committed to teach practical skills to play a part in the development of a more prosperous society, while launching social leaders. UPG wants to lead a new generation of socially responsible innovators, generating a supporting community for entrepreneurs all over the world.
These classes want to help develop ideas in order to transform the world while providing level competencies. A global learning community, which creates opportunities for economic and personal growth, through the involvement of all UPG members.
UPG Biashara is designed to aid entrepreneurs around the globe in their journey to turn ideas into businesses with its inclusiveness and ambitious scope, with the goal of supporting people with ideas wherever they may be.
We want to recognize the important role that business plays in sustainability, and our main goal is to help people with great ideas change and improve the world.
This initiative is also focused to end the stigma that entrepreneurs face. We have found that there is a false perception of corruption related to entrepreneurial intentions, which is an error as entrepreneurship is a form to develop innovative ideas and to get to know how to get the best out of an idea.
UPG Biashara is for everyone and with this program we want to hand entrepreneurial skills to everyone, while diversifying the face of entrepreneurship: no age, no gender, no religion, no passport, etc.
The initiative run by United People Global achieves several objectives including:
- To identify entrepreneurs whose businesses positively impact their communities
- To provide skills development and training to entrepreneurs
- To provide additional resources to the chosen entrepreneurs, including mentorship
- To provide entrepreneurs with a greater network of peers and collaborators
- To provide additional opportunities for stakeholders to support the initiative in small ways.
Why UPG Biashara
UPG Biashara will make it easier for aspiring entrepreneurs to learn how to kick start their business and also fine-tune potential business ideas with the goal of making the world a better place.
With a reasonable number of enterprises in our community, we can achieve exponential growth locally as United People Global’s (UPG) concern is to make an impact on every community on a global scale.
Why We Care
United People Global’s (UPG) goal is to step in and mediate as such increasing the productivity of aspiring entrepreneurs and existing enterprises with the required skillset and funding for selected leaders.
“A significant number of people globally have great dreams and business ideas but lack adequate technical know-how and funding to make this a reality”.
United People Global’s (UPG) mission of encouraging and enabling people from all walks of life globally birthed this initiative targeted at growing individuals with potential business ideas and overcoming the challenges thereby making our local communities stronger.
