By better training African students in entrepreneurial skills, the African continent could create more businesses but above all more sustainable businesses that create jobs and are sustainable. This is the postulate adopted by the Bettering Entrepreneurial Training in Africa project team, which brings together researchers from the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Sciences Po, in partnership with other African universities.
For several months, its members have been interviewing alumni of African universities to determine the know-how and entrepreneurial skills that they recommend to be included in the curricula of African universities in the years to come.
With that conference, the time has come to give a voice to entrepreneurs, designers of entrepreneurial policies and specialists in entrepreneurial training. And this in order to reflect on solutions and mechanisms to create an ecosystem of entrepreneurial training capable of sparking interest in not only entrepreneurial vocations but also success in this field.
The main objective is to research and find better entrepreneurial education practices to turn the

of the forum include:
- To give a voice to entrepreneurs, designers of entrepreneurial policies and specialists
- To provide young African graduates with training and equip them with the right entrepreneurial
The conference will be conducted in a hybrid manner, organized semi-face-to-face with part of the participants in a conference room comprising lecturers, students, journalists, decision-makers and the other part online via a Zoom video conference.
