ICC Centre of Entrepreneurship - Casablanca
ICC and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) have launched the ICC-ECA Centre of Entrepreneurship. The first hubs were announced in Ghana, Kenya, Morocco and Nigeria to inspire innovation and improve the business environment for entrepreneurs and small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Africa.
With strategic locations across Africa, the ICC-ECA Centre of Entrepreneurship will work with various stakeholders, including businesses, chambers of commerce, academic institutions, intergovernmental and governmental agencies, to connect local entrepreneurs to global markets and enhance regulatory conditions for SMEs to thrive.
From developing the skills of young people who face uncertain employment prospects to mentoring local start-ups and entrepreneurs, the ICC-ECA Centre of Entrepreneurship is devoted to preparing the next generation of African business leaders.
The Centre of Entrepreneurship in Casablanca is hosted by ICC Morocco, ICC’s national committee in Morocco, in partnership with United Nations Economic Commission for Africa and United Nations Economic and Social Commission for West Asia.
In additional to working with the global programmes of the Centre of Entrepreneurship, programmes in Casablanca includes the eCommerce Acceleration Programme (eCAP) which contributes to the growth of the digital economy and stimulates a dynamic entrepreneurship environment across the Arab region.
