The African Council for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (ACSBE) is the most prestigious and forward-thinking learned society of entrepreneurs in Africa, gathering Africa's leading minds in entrepreneurship and the premier organisation addressing emerging topics in entrepreneurship and small business, serving as the vehicle by which the African entrepreneurship ecosystem can work together to share best practices, develop programmes and initiatives, and collaborate and assist each other in advancing, strengthening, and celebrating the role of tertiary institutions in educating the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
ACSBE serves as a vehicle to develop curriculum, initiate collaborative projects with international partners in the field of entrepreneurship education, and create a platform for the global exchange and integration of best practices in entrepreneurship education. It provides a coordinated vehicle for participating members to collaborate on and communicate about the specific issues and challenges confronting tertiary institution-based entrepreneurship programmes.
ACSBE is an influential voice and advocate for entrepreneurs and small business owners. We focus on advancing policies and initiatives that encourage entrepreneurship and small business growth. Our strength and effectiveness are powered by members and supporters. Our network of supporters, including entrepreneurs and small business owners, state and local business organisations, corporate partners and associations work with us to strengthen the environment for entrepreneurship, investment, innovation and quality job creation
