SABC Education introduces Game Plan, a new entrepreneurial game show set to debut on Thursday 11th May 2017 at 11am.
Presented by a renowned TV personality Mzwandile Ngubeni, Game Plan is an entrepreneurship and educational studio-based, reality twist TV game show, with interventions to educate the previously disadvantaged South Africans about the basics of entrepreneurship and starting a successful business. The show aims to be a catalyst in creating a conducive environment for entrepreneurship among the youth of South Africa.
With economic emancipation as its core objective, Game Plan is a platform which aims to educate 101 key nuggets in business in a fun and engaging way, as it is clear that entrepreneurship is a key driver of economic and socio-economic improvement.
“Our society is sitting with a contentious issue of youth unemployment. A large chunk of this population is economically excluded, signaling a huge challenge for society. Entrepreneurship may not be the sole solution to youth unemployment but it presents a viable alternative", says Commissioning Editor Fani Matsebane
Game Plan teaches the viewers that the fundamental basis of a good business is to provide a product or service that caters for the particular needs of a specific target market through various types of games, themes and quizzes on the show.
"Experts argue that the promotion of youth entrepreneurship as an alternative hasn’t been sufficiently exploited as a vehicle to create jobs for the youth and grow the country’s economy”, concludes Fani Matsebane
The host will be joined by resident judges, Lebo Gunguluza, Chipo Mushwana, and Andy Khumalo as they assist in unpacking the subject matter to educate viewers at home.
Each week 6 contestants are grouped into two teams of 3 competing against each other for the title of being South Africa’s Game Plan Champion. The processes of selecting and identifying the contestants include social media, different incubators, word of mouth in various communities and approaching tertiary institutions.
For more information, publicity photos and interview opportunities please contact SABC2 and Andy Tosh publicity team.
Don’t miss Game Plan every Thursday at 11am, only on SABC2.
