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.

  • Sustainability: To ensure a healthy and equal society meeting the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future are essential.
  • Relevance and impact: Activities will prove relevance and impact to specific communities.
  • Entrepreneurialism: To forge the next generation of great business thinkers and doers nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit is essential – building capacity and capability through research-led educational programmes and relevant research that can be embraced by others will be key.
  • Innovation: The focus will be on pushing barriers and breaking new ground (level 2 innovations), to drive forward fresh ways of doing business for the 21st century.
