You are welcome to the Institute of Classic Entrepreneurs (INCENT), the first and only professional Institute in Africa to offer a well-structured and all-inclusive entrepreneurship training and membership platform – capable of converting job seekers into employers, thus creating new wealth and jobs and promoting economic development in African economies.
Entrepreneurship education is defined as the structured formal conveyance of entrepreneurial competencies, which in turn refer to the concepts, skills and mental awareness used by individuals during the process of starting and developing their growth-oriented ventures. While all entrepreneurs are self-employed, not all self-employed persons are entrepreneurs. INCENT’s emphasis is on formalising entrepreneurship education rather than leaving it for the hidden curricula, it may not be covered there, or it may be more confusing as there is lack of structure.
Our motto is Innovation, Professionalism and Prosperity. So, if you acquire entrepreneurship education, you will be productive, and sustainable development is guaranteed.
We believe that entrepreneurship is vital for economies to grow and prosper, which is why we work assiduously to build the profession by breeding professional, classic and successful entrepreneurs for sustainable development.
We have more than 3,000 fully qualified members in Africa. They are among the continent’s best-qualified and successful entrepreneurs working in every sector you can imagine.

Highlights of 2017 successes include:
In accordance with William Pollard, “learning and innovation go hand in hand, it is arrogance of success for one to think what he did yesterday would be sufficient for tomorrow”. We need a new generation of professional entrepreneurs, who are more customer centric, technology savvy, more highly qualified, flexible and agile with skill sets that are now more comprehensive than previously.Become a member
