Incubation and Innovation Center to host free entrepreneurship training

By Scott Bellows

The Incubation and Innovation Center will be hosting a free IN-PERSON training on Saturday, November 20 from 9:30am to 12:30pm on the third floor of the Freida Brown Student Center. Prof. Scott will be training the Center’s entrepreneurs on “Unconscious Bias: Boosting Your Business Using Entrepreneurship Psychological Tools”. The training is part of the Incubation and Innovation Center’s Fall semester program dedicated to trainings and partnership building.

The Incubation and Innovation Center supports USIU-Africa affiliated entrepreneurs to launch a new business or grow their startup ventures. The incubation program is free of charge for current students and alumni. We offer free entrepreneurship coaching, mentoring, training, guest speakers, focus groups, investor pitching, networking, and office space.

During the semester, the Center developed a new five-year partnership with USAID and Michigan State University to introduce a "Human Centered Design" program into our incubation program. It will compete with Egerton University in Nakuru, SwahiliPot in Mombasa, and the National Youth Bunge Association in Kisumu, Kakamega, Nakuru, Mombasa, and Kiambu. The Incubation Center also has six county governments onboard to support the initiative.

Additionally, the Center will host business plan competitions, investor pitching, agricultural business, creative artistic business, and technology business competitions and expos. This will go hand in hand with hosting a nationwide youth entrepreneurship, employment, and empowerment think tank at the Incubation and Innovation Center.
