WHAT WE DO
Entrepreneurship development & Wealth Creation.
In an effort to educate communities on various tools and resources available to help them help entrepreneurs in their communities, our platform enables the community to network with entrepreneurs who are searching for people and resources for business opportunities.
Core foundation has realized the necessity to inculcate entrepreneurial values among school children, college going students & technical students so that instead of looking for a job they can select entrepreneurship as their career option.
SOCIAL ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT
We aim to develop a cadre of social entrepreneurs, trainers motivators and counselors and also sensitise policy makers to make necessary changes in the policy for promoting social entrepreneurship.
INCUBATOR & CO-WORKING SPACE
The demand from start Ups for co-working space as well as incubators is firmly increasing. Our model combines hands on help with an expert team to positively impact the trajectory of early stage start ups, which is why we support emerging entrepreneurs who’re at the forefront of the journey.
As a foundation we promote innovation, research and development focused on the needs of the rural people and the rural producers and making better use of the opportunities offered by the ICT revolution.
Core foundation endeavor to address theoretical and empirical research issues that impact the development of entrepreneurship and promote its efficacy on the economic and social development.
We appreciate the value of entrepreneurship and nurture entrepreneurs. We believe that entrepreneurship and small businesses are vital parts of society’s long-term development. DOTS is a seed stage venture fund structured as either debt or equity that backs start-ups with both funding as well as active mentoring and support.
Africa112 is one of the ground breaking projects which is run by African Union Chapter in partnership with Core Foundation that aims to raise $112 million USD to respond to the needs of the continent’s young people.
The youth are Africa’s largest resources making up to over 65% of the continent’s population. It is know that in Africa, the youth constitutes about 37% of the total labour force, but make up about 60 % total unemployment.
This continental project is aimed at sensitizing on the Agenda 2063 aspiration 6 “an Africa where development is people driven, unleashing the potential of its women and youth,” which will be on a yearly basis.
It is against this background that the Core Foundation and the African Union Chapter are tasked to be the over-arching body of the Africa112 fund that will focus on the youth and women in Africa.
Africa 112 believes in creating a cadre of entrepreneurs who initiate sustainable enterprises that help in empowering marginalised sections of the society.
