OFFICE FOR ICT INNOVATION & ENTREPRENEURSHIP (OIIE)
Innovation is defined as “the process of translating an idea or invention into a good or service that creates value or for which customers will pay”. It addresses specific needs, be it social, political or economical.
This creative force called innovation is made real to us by its fusion with entrepreneurship, which is defined as the “the capacity and willingness to develop, organize and manage a business venture along with any of its risks in order to make a profit.”
