Accelerators of Progress? Entrepreneurship Training Programs in Ethiopia

Julian Tadesse

Ethiopia has recently seen an up rise in state sponsored as well as NGO-led initiatives to boost entrepreneurship in the country. The study will examine such programs as well as the overall policy framework that governs them. Special attention is paid to programs that target students and graduates from technological faculties in the country. Thus rhetorical frameworks related to promises of technology and innovation as well as practical approaches to foster entrepreneurial spirit and knowledge among the recipients will be examined.
The study aims to contribute to a deeper understanding of knowledge regimes intrinsic to the international development complex and techniques of governance associated with the ‘production of progress’ in Ethiopia.
