Effective Entrepreneurship Education: A Case Study from 10 years of African Leadership Group

by Ryan Findley & Josh Adler 

African Leadership Group (ALG) is a globally referenced pioneer in experiential education. In its short 10 years, it has established one of the world’s most important secondary school (pre-university) programs through African Leadership Academy  (South Africa), and has since expanded to two African Leadership University campuses (Mauritius, Rwanda) and a Business School (Rwanda).

They are now launching a new network of workplace and entrepreneurship accelerators (Kenya, South Africa) that seeks to make their model of leadership development accessible to many more young Africans. The goal is to identify, develop and connect 3 million African leaders of varying level and sector by 2035, making a significant impact on the talent and leadership needed on the continent to deliver an economically prosperous future for the world’s largest workforce. Collectively, entrepreneurship, entrepreneurs, and entrepreneurial thinking are linchpins within the African Leadership Group, as they are central to the group’s belief in training job creators– not just job seekers .
