Apply for the YEEP International Exposure Week 2020


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

Spend with us one week in Ethiopia and help students of the University of Hawassa to realize their business ideas. The YEEP International Exposure Week takes place from 1 – 9 February 2020. 

We are looking for 15 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. 

Besides your motivation, you should fit into one of the following profiles:

a) business or social sciences student with some theoretical background about topics like business development, marketing, communication, finance etc.

b) engineering student or similar technical profile who can act as a mediator between the technical and the business world

c) entrepreneur or entrepreneurial minded person with professional experience  

If you do not find yourself in one of these profiles, you still can participate, as we have a few special tasks to be filled out during the week. Just contact us for discussing about it. 


Currently, the Ethiopian business ideas, who will participate in our International Exposure Week, are not selected. We will keep you updated as soon as we know more about it.
