The programme is designed to engage students, alumni, faculty members, and external stakeholders in leveraging the research, innovative skills and experimental models to create start-ups and other opportunities. UGIEP is a result of the partnership between the University of Ghana through its Institute of Applied Science and Technology (IAST), and the Global Entrepreneurship network-Ghana (GEN-Ghana).
