Entrepreneurship projects for Africa have been announced

The British Council has announced the winners of funding for the inaugural Innovation for African Universities programme (IAU) 2021. The University of Nairobi is part of the Centre of Excellence (CoE) team in partnership with City, University London and ChangeSchool.

Over 50 applications were assessed through a rigorous process of multistage evaluation, and 24 projects were selected to be a part of the programme. 

In Kenya, Kenyatta University, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology, KCA University, Strathmore University and Riara University are the universities that have been successful in getting the grant.

Many of the projects represent a new generation of young inspiring student-led projects, addressing local and global challenges. They reflect extensive understanding of community needs and problems.  The support and interest in the IAU programme have been remarkable.
