The Young Entrepreneur Exchange Project (YEEP) is a joint initiative between Hawassa University (HU) in Ethiopia and Bern University of Applied Sciences (BFH) in Switzerland.

Increasing entrepreneurial thinking, capability-building and intercultural learning are some of the main goals of the partnership between Bern University of Applied Sciences (BFH), Switzerland and Hawassa University (HU), Ethiopia. The result of a four-day pilot workshop with lecturers and students from both institutions held in August 2013 was a project entitled Young Entrepreneur Exchange Project or YEEP. It was sucessfully launched in 2014 with 30 students from Ethiopia and Switzerland. 

At the end of 2015, all partners have signed an agreement in order to make YEEP a regular programme in their institutions. Besides YEEP, other cooperation activities might follow in order to foster mutual learning on alll levels. 


You can get more information about the project in the short YEEP factsheet.
