Around the world, our award-winning team is trusted by academic partners in Europe, manufacturing stakeholders in Asia, and governmental bodies in Africa; all with the intention to accelerate enterprise activity and to generate regional prosperity.

As we speak,

  • we’re developing entrepreneurship centres in Germany,
  • we’re creating supply chain excellence in India

And our global impact doesn’t end there..

Our breakthrough work with the University of Maiduguri in Nigeria was awarded The Best International Project at the prestigious, Guardian newspaper’s University Awards 2014. Against a background of violent political and social unrest, our professional team has delivered entrepreneurship programmes to over 170 participants in the region; establishing Nigeria’s very first sustainable Centre for Enterprise and Enterprise Development with a Greenhouse Investment Fund backed by The Central Bank of Nigeria. Our partnerships in Nigeria are providing real opportunity in the region, helping to deliver the hopes of business and their community partners alike.
