The vast majority of young Ethiopians with brilliant business ideas often lack the necessary skill and business development training to become successful. The goal of our Startup studios is to fill in the gap for the lack of business development skills young people may have, and collaboratively build with, and guide young entrepreneurs toward their dreams of establishing their businesses.
We will offer solid resources, internal teams, and networks, which entrepreneurs can utilize to propel ideas into products and businesses. 1888EC will primarily engage to:
- Develop and test new business ideas and transform them into new start-ups, housed within 1888EC.
- Engage with young entrepreneurs via our portal for collaborations/recruiting talent.
- Mobilize our in-house teams consisting of designers, engineers, advisors, business developers, sales managers, legal, HR, financial experts, and brand/marketing specialists, to develop our MVPs.
- Establish a co-working space to cultivate synergy and to boost creativity and innovation.
- Foster strategic partnerships with other technical experts to execute our mission and technical needs.
