This new phase of the partnership will focus on a closer collaboration between Patta Academy and DLA Piper so to further build on the mission of the Patta Academy. As part of this closer collaboration, DLA Piper will amongst other directly sponsor students, provide workshops and offer legal advice to students on a pro-bono basis.

Edson Sabajo, Founding father of Patta Academy comments: “We started Patta Academy to give the next generation of young creative entrepreneurs the opportunity to discover, explore and develop their skills to become the business leaders of the future. By opening up my network and challenging that network to share experiences and offer opportunities to young leaders, we invest in a brighter future for everyone. We believe in the motto: Each One Teach One and we are excited to have DLA Piper on board as friend and partner to the Academy and we look forward to working together in building a new community.”

Together, we are able to make an even greater impact on potential future leaders in pushing our communities forward. We look forward to contributing to the Patta Community by empowering as many students of the Patta Academy as we possibly can.”
