Teaching business start up to the future leaders of Africa

Recently Bob had the opportunity to work with 20 collage age students from Mali, Cameroon, Nigeria, Senegal, and Sudan at Chico State helping the students craft business based solutions to social and economic problems encountered in their home countries. 

The students’ trips were paid by the U.S. State Department through the Study of the U.S. Institute for Student Leaders.  After a month in Chico and the San Francisco Bay area the students with their leader, Chico State Professor Julie Indvik, traveled to the Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City and then on to the University of Missouri.  The program was a great success and has been renewed for the next two years.
