Promoting entrepreneurship through sustainable ecosystem

Register your Interest

Programme dates:
18th – 22nd September 2023
Time Commitment: Short Programme

Location: Leeds University, UK.

Cost: £4,500.

About the Programme

In the current VUCA world, emerging and developing economies are faced with the wicked problems of high and growing unemployment with its related developmental and security implications, low survival rates of startups and SMEs, high dependence on imports, and many challenges. 

Entrepreneurship can be the key to unlocking resilient growth across Africa, but only when driven by both socially productive and growth-oriented new businesses. It is an enabler for socio-economic growth and development in Africa, especially within the context of youth unemployment and increasing youth population for which the traditional, and indeed emerging, industrial sectors will not be able to produce sufficient jobs to meet demand.

The trends of entrepreneurship reveal mostly necessity-driven and low-scale enterprising initiatives, with not many cases to show for highly transformational, high growth, high impact ventures that could create the needed jobs and shared prosperity. There is a need to develop a supportive ecosystem that fosters entrepreneurial success and growth. 

This program has been designed to help entrepreneurial ecosystem builders in Africa and other emerging and developing economies to better appreciate the critical pillars required for building robust and resilient ecosystems and prepare participants for the task of innovation ecosystem development. 

The session will be very practical and highly interactive, drawing deeply on various ecosystems around the world. If you are supporting entrepreneurship development in any capacity, this will be an unforgettable one week of your career. 

The program is delivered by the University of Leeds, through the Leeds Business School, with Innohub as the Marketing and Coordinating Partner.
