Entrepreneurship week 2012 targets 25000 in Rwanda

The organisers of the annual Global Entrepreneurship Week aim to double the event’s impact in Rwanda this year, reaching up to 25000 young entrepreneurs.

The event, staged for the first time in Rwanda last year, involves 123 countries around the world.

It will take place from 12 – 18 November and includes a series of activities aimed at boosting entrepreneurial activities in the participating countries.

In Rwanda, the Babson-Rwanda Entrepreneur Centre will coordinate the activities. The centre says many local young people have good business ideas, but lack mentorship and training.

The centre hopes up to 40 local partners will become involved in the exercise, arranging training to reach up to 25000 people.
