ENTERPRISE & INNOVATION
The purpose of the Students Enterprise & Innovation programme is to foster entrepreneurial and innovation skills for young adults with the aim of raising their business acumen and awareness.
The aim to train young adults is to potentially create self- employment through starting their own enterprises and to consider it an option for their future careers.
There is a growing need for young entrepreneurs to emerge.
Innovation needs to be encouraged to meet the needs of small, medium and large businesses.
Entrepreneurship is viewed as a major driver of innovation, competitiveness and growth. National governments and international organizations such as UNESCO, OECD, the European Commission and others have increased their focus on entrepreneurship education.
These initiatives bond well for ensuring sustained momentum to encourage schools colleges, universities and small businesses to make commitments in this area
