The International Centre for Transformational Entrepreneurship (ICTE) is a unique institution formed to support sustainable socio-economic transformation through systemic approaches to entrepreneurship in communities nationally and internationally.

This will be achieved through a focus on Entrepreneurial Leadership, Entrepreneurial Education, and Innovation. The research that we undertake informs our thinking and our actions.

At ICTE our research aims to support economic development and policy impact through project engagement and consultancy. Education is at the heart of economic transformation and entrepreneurial education supports socio-economic growth, enhances social capital and reduces inequality.
