PhD position Environmental Sciences, Hungary

YEP Role

As a Business Development facilitator I learnt and assisted in a wide variety of tasks including building and maintaining a market for Cocoons, a Land Life Company product, in southern Africa. Engaging in the research and development of the Cocoons within the local context was a key role and the support to the clients on the use of the Cocoons. I provided support by establishing the new company in South Africa, named Uboomi Pty. (Ltd.) and foster its development. There will be a specific focus of investigating possibilities of local production of the Cocoon in South Africa.
