Basecamp Business Hub
At Basecamp we believe that entrepreneurship and innovation are critical to the development and well-being of national economies as entrepreneurs create jobs and opportunities, especially for the youth. We believe that more needs to be done to support entrepreneurs to set up and build sustainable businesses in developing African economies. Additionally, innovation in many developing economies has been central to addressing social challenges, improving economic performance, and creating jobs.
Startups are synonymous with entrepreneurial Innovation. Basecamp Business Incubator, therefore, exists to support startup entrepreneurs with innovative business ideas to start and build their businesses.
