Meet ICTE: The International Centre for Transformational Entrepreneurship

The ICTE is a unique Centre, formed to support sustainable socio-economic transformation through systemic approaches to entrepreneurship in communities.

Within this context, ‘transformational entrepreneurship’ refers to a holistic and heuristic orientation in terms of entrepreneurship promotion and combines the individual and other sub-systems (such as society and institutions) interacting and collaborating to create a positive framework in which opportunities can be exploited beyond the local level. This is achieved through a focus on entrepreneurial education, leading edge research in entrepreneurship, university enterprise zones and policy/ practices that can assist transformational entrepreneurship. ICTE is reaching out internationally and recently launched the African Institute for Transformational Entrepreneurship in Ghana.

  • Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Education
