Apply for the YEEP International Exposure Week 2019


Do you want to discover Africa in a really different way? 

Come with us to Ethiopia for a week and help students of the University of Hawassa to realize their business ideas. The YEEP International Exposure Week takes place from 2 – 10 February 2019. 

We want to put together a group of 8-12 motivated and open-minded participants, who want to apply their theoretic and practical know-how and work during one week with Ethiopian student teams on their business ideas.


Qualifications like knowledge about business development, communication, project management, technical know how and many more are in high demand. Together with you, we will try to find out during the application process, how you could support the Ethiopian teams in coaching or input sessions.

We want you to share your skills, but on the other hand, you will also get something in return. Experience a fascinating country and culture in a truly authentic way and get to know different young people and their dreams.  

Currently, we foresee working with the following business ideas:

  1. Maintenance Service for Wheelchairs
  2. Handbags for heavy duty purpose
  3. Pelleting machines (for co2 friendly fuel)
  4. Distillation machine (water for hospital usage)
  5. Ray meter (distance meter) for construction sites
  6. Veine discovering lamp/ tool for medical purpose
  7. Floor cleaning  machine for indoor use (super markets, hospitals etc.)


If you are interested, check out our detailed description of the project and the process of application and participation. Don't miss the deadline to apply (15 November 2018)!

If you want to know more about the project, we recommend you to come on one of our information events:
