ICC Centre of Entrepreneurship – Nairobi
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 Nairobi is hosted by the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
In additional to working with the global programmes of the Centre of Entrepreneurship, programmes in Nairobi include AfCFTA Cross Border Trade, Sensitisation programme, Start-up mentorship programmes, and a regional insect-based feed programme.
