Entrepreneurship Education

Who We Are
Entrepreneurship Education is a NEXUS Lab on the challenges faced by global entrepreneurs, especially by those who are in underserved locations. We empathically engage with these entrepreneurs and act as a bridge for solutions that help spread skills, capital and other key success factors to places where they are not present.
 
Our key contributions to this global community are: serving as an enabler for peer-to-peer mentoring, fostering venture investing in emerging entrepreneurship ecosystems, enabling skill and competence training to develop human capital.
 
Our Activity
Peer-to-peer mentoring program amongst entrepreneurs who need support to develop their projects/ventures.

Skill training webinars about key themes such as market validation, fundraising, growth hacking, with specialists from accelerators, incubators, universities, venture capital funds and innovative companies.

Decentralized venture investing amongst investors in different regions who aim at counting on local partners to co-invest in underserved locations, diluting risk and expanding reach.
