Lindal adds: "These promising business students are the future of our country. If we can provide these youth with some professional guidance, motivation or that inspirational spark that will help them continue to drive and develop their start-up companies, we will be overjoyed. These students are thirsting for learning and mentorship, and a small word of advice might well catapult them to the next level of their business career."
