OUR HAPPY WHALE IS GOING BACK TO SCHOOL
Walter the happy whale, might end up not only being the happiest little whale in the world, but also the smartest! But what kind of school will Walter attend, you might ask? And what subject will little Walter be studying? And why would a little whale even consider going to school at all!?
Well, Walter is a bright and curious whale with a wonderful passion for entrepreneurship! So when the change presented itself, Walter flapped his wings of joy and happily took it! Therefore we are extremely excited to announce, that Walter has been accepted in to the #9 batch of the award winning accelerator Go Grow at CSE – Copenhagen School of Entrepreneurship.
Hard work and creativity pays of!
Last year one of Walter´s very good friends, Aase Morell, pedagogue and language-consultant, shared a great idea with him!
What if they could help the kindergarten teachers to inspire kids to develop a passion for nature and science! Walter cares about nature and he adores to make different experiments and of course he loved the idea.
Together Aase and Walter developed a smart and easy to use booklet, tailor made for the kindergarten teachers. This booklet helps teachers, parents and kids to be more engaged to the world and the nature and to be able to see science in their everyday life.
It turned out to be an extremely good idea, creating amazing results in the kindergartens! So when Walter asked us to help him pitch this idea at the Creative Business Cup Denmark last year, we were all in. At the business cup they also loved the idea. In fact so much, that they rewarded this new concept with the 2nd winning Place of the whole business cup. This achievement qualified Walter and his team to join the Go Grow incubator.
Education and knowledge are the main keys to success!
So! Long story short. Walter has just finished his first week back in school! He already made a lot of new friends, spread happy smiles and vibes and got so many new impressions.
Over the next 7 months Walter will attend classes and workshops together with his mom and dad – Anna & Martin. It’s going to be fun, interesting and most of all educational. During these 7 months, we will be working concentrated on how to organize, build and scale a business. We will be working hard on how to crystallize our concept and on how to make kids, parents and kindergarten pedagogues happy and curious.
As a strong bonus, Walters little team also had a mentor assigned. He will be working closely together with Walter and helping him to stay sharp and focused.
If you want to be successful, be believe that you have to work hard and smart. Therefore we are super happy and proud to be given this amazing opportunity to develop new skills and more knowledges as entrepreneurs!
We are supporting Walter the best way we can, and are extremely excited to help him work on his new concept to inspire education in the kindergartens. Follow this blog to stay updated on the lastest news on Walters journeys.
