There are hundreds of entrepreneurs in Ethiopia that want to learn from successful business people like you! Your skills and experience could help build the ventures and create the jobs that end poverty in Ethiopia. We want to invite you to make a powerful impact on Ethiopia’s economic landscape.
After many decades of natural disasters and political upheaval, Ethiopia remains one of the poorest countries in the world. Even though there are over 150,000 graduates from Ethiopian universities every year, most of those graduates move into almost 60% unemployment. The people of Ethiopia need more than just charity... they need economic change.
We will host an ECatalyst Conference, centered around your skill set, for entrepreneurs in Addis Ababa to learn from successful American business leaders like you through workshops and life-on-life interactions. We will also hold a pitch competition featuring ECatalyst entrepreneurs and others from around the city.
Participants will also have the opportunity to experience some of the many wonders of Ethiopian culture and heritage while building relationships with Ethiopian entrepreneurs. We will take at least two trips into the country and have other experiences in Addis. These may include (depending on season and availability):
