Miami-based Venture Hive, an accelerator and incubator, has launched in Tanzania in a move to help entrepreneurs there get access to training and skills to launch and build their tech start-ups while they are still on campus.

Venture Hive will work with the Tanzania Commission for Science & Technology and the Dar Teknohama Business Incubator to launch an education programme to help university students at five Tanzanian universities start up while still studying.

Announced in Moscow on Monday at the LIONS@FRiCA meeting during the Global Entrepreneurship Congress, the programme will be available to several thousand students in universities in Dar Es Salaam, then spread out across the country.

Venture Hive will allow universities access to its Venture Hive U educational site with tech entrepreneurship education and a full suite of experiential learning tools for the students to help them develop their business skills and network with would-be business partners via the portal.

According to a statement from Venture Hive founder Susan Amat, “This programme will help them understand they can solve problems and create sustainable solutions. It will teach students to think like capitalists in a broad way, in terms of global solutions rather than just solutions for their local community. Otherwise they’ll miss out on a great opportunity to improve the world.”

This is not the first time the tech educator and accelerator is doing things out of Miami. Last year, the firm says it trained entrepreneurs from over 25 countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe and Latin America and apart from the training, also linked the entrepreneurs with potential partners and mentors from around the world.
