SEPT organises Business Start-up Clinic for KAAD Scholars

The SEPT in collaboration with the KAAD organised a start-up seminar for KAAD scholars on the 27th August,2016.

The international SEPT Program, Leipzig University organised a Business start-up Clinic for the Catholic Academic Exchange Service (KAAD) scholars as part of KAAD’s three day reintegration workshop which took place from the 25th – 28th August, 2016 in Bonn. This is to support project and business ideas of scholars who are finishing their study in Germany and returning back to their home countries.

The training provided competences needed to start new ventures and projects. The scholars were introduced to different tools they can use to work on their ideas. It is the objective of the KAAD that scholars will go back to build their own businesses and run their own projects to support their home country’s economy; to be employers and not just employees.

The  foundation  of this  training  program  is  the  conviction  that  the  future  of  developing country economies relies  on  entrepreneurship  and  innovative  Small  and  Medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The facilitator of the workshop was Prof. Dr. Utz Dornberger, Director of the International SEPT Program, Leipzig University with the assistance of Richard Adu-Gyamfi and Kwabena Obiri Yeboah.
