Crossing the river was easier with help

The second cohort of JOLT has just passed the halfway point, and it has been nothing short of a whirlwind. The contemporary world of entrepreneurship is intensely saturated, so the level of competition has ratcheted up that much further.

The new generation (X? Y? We’re running out of letters, let’s call it Z-squared) is harkening back to the concept of doing something of one’s own. And not just digitally. The wealth of artisanally-crafted floral bouquets, made-with-love patisseries, and so forth are demonstrative of this viewpoint. But the sad truth is that for every success there are failures. Not everyone can win.

To that end, we can’t recommend a program like JOLT highly enough. The entrepreneurial world is a hotly contested battle for eyeballs and chequebooks, and in such a competitive landscape, every advantage is a huge gift. Sometimes ideas, talent, and hustle still require a helping hand. Would-be entrepreneurs are well-advised to take advantage of any such opportunity.
