The Centre responds to the problem of unemployment and unsustainable economic growth.

Inventors, investors, entrepreneurs, skilled and unskilled come together to work and collaborate in research, design and implementation of innovation in all its forms. Citizens looking to start up or run businesses are provided with the guidance and training on how to do that.
