team shift


The SHIFT program design encompasses several interconnected elements that collectively drive change at multiple levels, ranging from the individual to the community, institution, and system levels.


Individual Level 

Year 1 , Year 2

SHIFT's programs empower individuals with entrepreneurship skills, mindset, and resources. By providing experiential learning, personalized mentorship, and access to a collaborative ecosystem, we equip individuals with the capacity to initiate and manage businesses effectively.

Community Level 

Year 3, Year 4, Year 5

As individuals succeed in their entrepreneurial ventures, they become role models and sources of inspiration within their communities. This cultivates a culture of entrepreneurship and encourages others to explore business opportunities, fostering economic growth and self-sufficiency.

Institution Level 

Year 6, Year 7

SHIFT collaborates with educational institutions to embed entrepreneurship education in curricula, creating a lasting impact on formal education systems. By influencing institutional policies, we contribute to a more entrepreneurial education environment that equips future generations with practical skills.

System Level 

Year 7 - Year 10 +

Through strategic partnerships and engagement with governments, regulatory bodies, and industry stakeholders, SHIFT works to influence policies that support entrepreneurship and digital innovation. This systemic change creates an enabling environment for business growth and contributes to broader economic development.

SHIFT's multi-level program design aims to create a comprehensive impact. By fostering entrepreneurship at individual, community, institution, and system levels, we promote economic growth, empower individuals, and influence urban development. The resulting ripple effects extend beyond entrepreneurs to their households and communities, contributing to broader societal resilience and prosperity. This aligns seamlessly with the foundational goals of using technology and education to drive intergenerational mobility across Africa and less developed demographics. 



Monitoring and Evaluation 

Implementing a robust monitoring and evaluation framework is essential to track program effectiveness and adapt strategies as needed. This data-driven approach ensures continuous improvement and demonstrates accountability to stakeholders.


Gender Empowerment 

Intentional efforts to promote females, including specific initiatives to empower young women in entrepreneurship and technology, are integral to the program's design and execution.


Local Partnerships 

Establishing strong collaborations with local educational institutions, government bodies, and community organizations is vital. These partnerships enhance program reach, ensure cultural sensitivity, and facilitate sustainable impact at the grassroots level.


Crisis Preparedness 

Developing contingency plans to address unforeseen challenges, such as public health crises or political disruptions, is critical to maintaining program continuity and minimizing disruptions.


Adaptive Learning

The ability to incorporate feedback and adapt program content and delivery methods based on the evolving needs and challenges of ambitious minds is crucial. This flexibility ensures that SHIFT remains relevant and impactful.


Community Ownership 

Fostering a sense of ownership and involvement among program participants and alumni is key to building a self-sustaining ecosystem of changemakers who contribute to their communities' growth.
