...and that is how its all started.. In August/ September 2013 a small pioneer Swiss - Ethiopian team established a partnership programme with Awassa University in order to set up an entrepreneurship promotion project. We called it Young Entrepreneur Exchange Project (YEEP). After a tough application, idea-presenting and assesment process we have had 7 groups with between 4-5 motivated students from Switzerland and Ethiopia who have created their start up business ideas.

Now the final round is coming: From 24th to 30th of August 2014 student teams will work on their business ideas in Awassa, Ethiopia. And the winners will be suporrted, in order to be able to start their own small business. Curious? Then - follow the event on our blog page: http://yeeproject.blogspot.ch/
