Innovation, Incubation & Linkages

The directorate pursues a number of initiatives, among them are:

  • To create and enhance innovation and entrepreneurship awareness among KCA students. Towards this end we will be hosting an entrepreneurship week in November 2021, Business plan competitions and an entrepreneurship conference by mid 2022.
  • Create linkages between KCA and various stakeholders. One way in which we are do this is to open the arms and invite many stakeholders to be partners not only in executing, but also in planning. We as KCA, can provide the environment and coordinate the thought leadership, but we need as many partners as possible to support with resources, ideas, side-events etc
  • Sponsorship of innovative ideas among the students
  • Establishing a vibrant consultancy wing to provide solutions to industry
  • Capacity building for industry
  • Facilitating global linkages to enhance the recruitment of international students and faculty
