Entreprenuerial Ecosystem to be Launched in Sub- Saharan African Universities.

It is the right time to invest in entrepreneurial education as it creates opportunities and stimulates the economy and helps in nation building. The innovative educational program ‘Innovation For African Universities’  is facilitated to Sub Saharan African Universities by the British Council with an aim to develop skills to build sustainable companies, industries and services. It aims to instil innovative spirit and entrepreneurial mindset among the students and academia.

The program which is an excellent innovation from the British Council, creates an entrepreneurial ecosystem which in turn creates business and employment opportunities among African Youths. Three Centre of Excellence partners – University of Nairobi, Bayes Business School at City University of London and Change School – will manage the program and facilitate the exchange of learning across the network. Partnerships include London School of Economics and George Okoye University in Nigeria, London South Bank University and Mangosuthu University of Technology in South Africa, Imperial College London and University of Ghana.
