Business Incubator and Innovation Management Training in Rwanda

INES – Ruhengeri, our iN4iN partner in Rwanda, organized in March a 5-day training on Business Incubator and Innovation Management. The training for Business Incubator staff from different technical colleges and institutes of applied sciences was supported by the Belgian development cooperation (BTC). Trainers from Leipzig presented and discussed in the first part of the seminar good practices, sustainable financial and critical success factors for business incubator development. In the second part, iN4iN introduced the stages of the innovation process and practical innovation management tools. The participants applied among others creativity techniques and tools on how to learn from competitors and to describe business models. It was an inspiring experience to work with creative people committed to support young entrepreneurs in Rwanda!
