The maiden edition of CU-ICE was held in 2017 with the theme “Entrepreneurship and the knowledge economy”. The success of the conference was evident by its ability to bring together entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, policy makers and start-up champions from Nigeria to identify new ways of helping start-ups and existing firms to achieve stronger competitiveness and enumerate the roles of entrepreneurship in solving economic challenges. Here is what Outrepreneurs had to say about the event.
In 2018, the target of the CU-ICE is to move on from exposing theoretical issues that strengthen entrepreneurship, to exploring practical engagement of entrepreneurial capacities based on perspectives that engage industry and academia in intellectual discuss sessions. At the end of the conference, we hope to have achieved a truly international conference that would have addressed key economic and developmental issues in Africa and beyond.
