TechPreneur Africa is a social impact organization that focuses on bridging the knowledge gap and harnessing innovation and entrepreneurship to achieve real economic impact across Africa as a whole and ultimately make the world a better place.
We work closely with entrepreneurs connecting them with partners, mentors, funders, and a global network to help catalyze their business into sustainable and mature enterprise. We provide skill training and education in areas of health, ICT and vocation to make our youth “job ready” and provide long term and economically sustainable opportunities.
We build strategic partnerships with industry leaders to connect students, entrepreneurs with businesses and corporations to provide an effective off-ramp to meet human capacity gaps.
We actively work with governments and world class faculty to implement the Entrepreneurship Acceleration Programs to help regions accelerate economic growth and job creation through innovation-driven entrepreneurship.
At the core of our vision is 7 of the Sustainable Development Goals:
Decent Work and Economic Growth
Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
Sustainable cities and communities
Knowledge is the main driver of development
Knowledge is the main driver of development. The correlation between education and rate of economic development has long been well established. Regions that boast high levels of education also have populations with higher skill levels and consequently are more prosperous.
