What is Enkopa?

A national movement to celebrate and promote Ethiopian Entrepreneurship stories, especially untold ones A movement with pan African ambition, to increase collaboration between African countries and collectively own the narrative on Entrepreneurship, to essentially re-brand our continent A national movement to encourage all stakeholders (engineers, startupers, ecosystem builders, entrepreneurs, policy makers, educators, etc.) to build a thriving Entrepreneurship ecosystem

Why Enkopa

Because the MoLS, as the owner of the movement, is working in full synergy with other stakeholders on offering a nugget to the Entrepreneurship ecosystem, a financial Instrumentto invest in startups Because each stakeholder if clear-sighted can discover the gold ore it carries, and with hard work and dedication, can turn it into a gold nugget Because each Entrepreneur can be likened to gold ore, waiting to be uncovered and purified Because when brought together all entrepreneurs can become an economic and knowledge goldmine
