TEENpreneurship 2019 will train participants to explore opportunities in technology

The 2019 edition of the Springboard TEENpreneurship program has kicked off - aimed at honing the skills of teenagers in the space of science and technology.

The personal and career development initiative of the Springboard Road Foundation under the leadership of Albert and Comfort Ocran is to see young students develop the necessary skills to become better personalities and agents of positive change.

On day one, teenagers were walked through the art of robotics and artificial intelligence. This is the second time the TEENpreneurship program has occurred and already these participants are confident of improving their tech skills.

Facilitator of the event, Mathew Preprah Boateng who detailed the strategy of this programme told Joy Business “this year’s program will be an add-on of previous years. We are looking to build upon the capacity of these young ones when it comes to robotics.”

TEENpreneurship is a personal and career development initiative of the Springboard Road Show Foundation under the leadership of Albert & Comfort Ocran.

The youth development conference which has been running since April 2010 provides the avenue for future leaders from different second cycle institutions to connect with one another.

Through interactive activities, they develop the necessary skills to become better personalities and agents of positive change. They share ideas, identify opportunities, and explore their own potentials.

TEENpreneurship 2019 will train participants to explore opportunities in technology with an added focus on entrepreneurship, finance and talent development.

The 5-day non-residential conference will work with industry experts in four creative areas in technological;

1. Robotics,

2. Coding & Bot Development,

3. Illustration & Animation and

4. Photography & Videography.

Each creative group will produce a project as part of their learnings under the supervision and guidance of experts in their chosen area for the #TEENcompetition in the morning of the final day.


TEENpreneurship 2019 will close with the #TEENsGotTalent show in the afternoon of the final day. The conference is opened to all teenagers between the ages of 12-17 years.
