Leap

LEAP Innovation Support by AGS Programme puts ​together the bright minds of entrepreneurs, students and researchers to create new or improved products and ​services. The facilitated process brings together different perspectives from Zambia and Finland, with the intention ​of designing sustainable, innovative solutions to serve the Zambian market.

We believe that great ideas are born when people from diverse backgrounds interact and ideate in a safe, ​supporting environment.

Innovations from universities rarely come to fruition due to lack of business skills. LEAP offers a new way for academics and businesses to work together, commercialise innovations and share knowledge. It does this by drawing knowledge ​from two diverse pools of expertise; Zambia and Finland.

Share, listen, discover, build and LEAPfrog your business.

Women-led enterprises, female students and researchers are particularly encouraged to reach out!

LEAP is implemented in partnership with the National Technology Business Centre (NTBC) of Zambia.
