The Innovation for African Universities Project titled Accelerating Youth Entrepreneurship and Innovation for Sustainable Tourism in Africa is a multi-partner project funded by the British Council under the Innovation for African Universities program. The project is being implemented in Kenya, Ghana and South Africa by the University of Brighton (UK), University of Strathmore (KE), University of Ghana, Sustainable Travel and Tourism Agenda (KE), and Africa Tourism Partners (SA).

The project aims to foster pathways for developing innovative mentorship programs in tourism for supporting young opportunistic entrepreneurship interventions which are climate-friendly and digitally oriented for sustainable tourism development in Sub- Saharan Africa. Following their successful application, 5 tourism management students currently in their 4 th year of study at the School of Tourism and Hospitality embarked on a 5-month programme facilitated through entrepreneurship and innovation coaching that will challenge and inspire them to become a high-impact entrepreneurs and innovators in the tourism industry.
