Right before Christmas, we conducted the first pilot accelerator workshop with the 2nd year Computer Science & Entrepreneurship students at BIT. Teresa & Uta came to Burkina Faso full of real-life business examples, brainstorming techniques, and easy ways to approach business models aiming to spark the student’ interest in starting their own business. During the workshop, they introduced the students to entrepreneurship and gave them the necessary grasp and tools to develop their own business ideas. The students then spent two days in groups fully committed to becoming Burkina’s next Google, Facebook, or Tesla.
