International Entrepreneurship Dialogue


Established in 2007 through the cooperation between Northeastern University (USA) and TSIBA Business School, the International Entrepreneurship Dialogue (IED) is an annual programme for entrepreneurs who are ready to take their business or startups to the next level but lack time or skills to think strategically.

Taking place in July, the programme is designed to support local businesses to deal with finance and marketing problems that hinder their growth.

University Students from Cape Town, South  Africa and Boston, USA collaborate in a deep immersion 2-week dialogue with local entrepreneurs to help them identify  and implement solutions to their challenges.

It's high impact and loved by all who take part..
