Training and Mentoring Entrepreneurs
Innovators are rarely entrepreneurs, so valuable technologies fail to make an impact on society and their SDG aspirations. ChangeSchool train and mentor technology entrepreneurs from 17 countries to shift their mindsets, build sustainable business and launch innovations to market. We also help build extensive international networks growth and scaling
Alumni of programmes are sources of support, advocacy and talent for businesses, universities, and programmes. ChangeSchool drives engagement programmes to build thriving communities of interest and practice, for clients in the UK, SSA, Latin America and Southeast Asia
Entrepreneurial systems leadership
Creating decent jobs for the youth are high on national agendas. ChangeSchool works with the leadership teams of HEIs, ecosystems and foundations to transform entrepreneurial education, support, and teaching practices to transform graduate capabilities to be start-up and 21-century skills job ready.
Entrepreneurial systems thinking
Graduate entrepreneurship programmes fail to make traction due to unsupportive ecosystems. In Sub-Saharan Africa, through our Centre of Excellence we cultivate systems thinking across 24 international higher education partnerships to share working practices, facilitate knowledge exchange and transformative learning experiences to transform the entrepreneurial success of graduates.
Universities excel in research and education but often fail to commercialize due to market understanding gaps, leading to missed opportunities worth billions of dollars. ChangeSchool has ran national level entrepreneurial university award programmes to inspire, guide, and recognise universities that demonstrate leadership and progress in driving student enterprise activity, embracing commercialisation of IP and developing 21st-century job skills for their graduates.
