Connecting with fellow team entrepreneurs in Tanzania was all part of a day’s work for Paul Cois and Helen Docherty from the entrepreneurship degree programme in Newcastle. The opportunity to share ideas across continents came when their own support coach, Team Academy graduate Nina Jussila travelled to Iringa, Tanzania, to help support a new unit, opened just 8 months ago. One project she initiated was to link Tanzanian entrepreneurs with UK programme participants.
Nina commented “I have always been passionate about building our international network, linking entrepreneurs globally to learn and build business across international borders. The opportunity to help the new operation in Tanzania came at he end of an exciting year for me during which I participated with our Newcastle entrepreneurs in working visits to Finland, Hungary and Spain”
