Colorado State University, 2012 - $36,000

This grant supports the development of Sustainable Enterprise MBAs for Africa (SEMBAA), a joint educational venture of the Global Social and Sustainable Enterprise (GSSE) MBA program at the College of Business at Colorado State University and the Chandria School of Business at United States International University in Kenya. SEMBAA will provide African students with a GSSE certificate to complement the USIU MBA and will also provide venture acceleration training at a cost they can afford. Student entrepreneurs will be taught and mentored by CSU/USIU faculty and other industry experts, with the ultimate goal of empowering African entrepreneurs to scale new enterprises and grow the economy.
