The setting up of the Enterprise Centre is in line with UniSey's Strategic Plan 2014-2016 and with its emergent plan for the next three years. To support the establishment of the new Centre, UniSey has partnered with the Ministry of Investment, Entrepreneurship, Development and Business Innovation (MIEDBI).
The main aim of the Centre is to strengthen the culture of entrepreneurship in the country, and to create a new generation of entrepreneurs with the capability to really make things happen.
To be the National Leader in Entrepreneurship Development.
The Centre will reflect the essential values of Seychelles and will support the principle of sustainable development. It will work closely with businesses and Government departments to achieve across-the-board progress. Strategic partnerships will be an important means to create synergies and encourage close cooperation.
The Centre will be at the heart of a new generation of creative entrepreneurs who will be equipped to operate in domestic, regional and global markets. It will draw together a multi-disciplinary team to:
• provide education and training opportunities;
• undertake research and consultancy;
• engage in live projects;
• assist start-ups in taking their ideas to market; and to
• raise awareness of entrepreneurship across the nation.
The Centre will be led by Marie-Celine Zialor and will be based at the Ma Joie campus of the University of Seychelles.
