The challenge or problem
Entrepreneurship and innovation had, over the course of the past few decades, fallen into a lull in Chad. As a result of this, stagnation had begun to spread across the country. The Chadian economy suffered severe blows as a result of this and Chad Innovation Hub seeks to rectify these.
The solution that was implemented
By educating young Chadians and emphasising the importance of innovation and entrepreneurship, Chad Innovation Hub has begun to spread its knowledge across the country.
What results were achieved?
Chad Incubation Hub provides a collaborative workspace that will allow young people to incubate their ideas and turn them into businesses. A hub for workshops, conferences, case studies and peer-to-peer sessions related to smart technology, business, society and infrastructure.
Lessons and recommendations
The establishment of a mentoring system has been incredibly helpful. It will coach young people on real business projects and will also give the opportunity to any young executive to undertake through coaching sessions on concrete projects that he will entrust to young talents selected by the incubator.
