The British Council’s Innovation for African Universities (IAU) will be showcasing the result of its unique pilot in sub-Sahara Africa aimed at closing the gap between job seekers and job creators for African youth.

The event, scheduled to take place in Ghana tomorrow, 24th March, will bring industry, investors, creators and universities together to present the initial outcome of its Grant Cycle 1 delivered across four pilot countries in sub-Sahara Africa of Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa.

According to a statement from the Council, a wide range of contributors will deliberate on mechanisms and recommendations for the next stage of the programme, which is to scale effectively across more countries to reach more graduating students and provide more opportunities for them to create generational businesses.

The IAU was created by the British Council in 2021 on the back of the COVID-19 crisis to strengthen the entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem and improve student employability outcomes in Sub-Saharan African universities through the promotion and capacitation of mutually beneficial partnerships.

The statement said by pairing universities in Africa and the UK, IAU sought to catalyse the development of entrepreneurship curriculums customized to each country’s unique situation and economic needs in a bid to leapfrog the creation of generational businesses across the continent in response to its rapidly growing youth population, where many are confronted by high levels of unemployment and underemployment.
