Empowering Educators

How to Teach Case Studies like a Pro

Ignite the Entrepreneurial Spirit in Your Classroom

Powered by the Anzisha Prize and African Leadership Academy, this workshop draws on a ten-year track record of propelling young people into the future of work.


Workshop Description

Join us for an exciting workshop at the Entrepreneurship Education in Africa (EEA) Summit that will unveil the secrets to effectively teach case studies, specifically tailored for educators like you!

With Africa’s youth population growing faster than jobs are being created, opportunities to earn a living must go beyond traditional career paths. To confidently navigate this world of work, young people will need to develop entrepreneurial aspirations and improve their entrepreneurial leadership, confidence, and skills.

Educators can facilitate this preparation – and thus support successful transitions into entrepreneurship in their classrooms.  However, not enough content helps teachers using various curricula talk to their students about what that looks like after secondary school or even university in a way that is contextual and not overly reliant on non-African stories.

To address this need, Anzisha, in collaboration with African Leadership Academy, have developed a series of case studies centered around very young African entrepreneurs. By showcasing their success stories, we hope to ignite a spark of innovation and creativity within your classrooms.

Imagine the impact you can make by showcasing the success stories of young African entrepreneurs to your students. The Anzisha case studies collection not only serves as a source of inspiration but also provides practical insights and replicable business models that can be applied by your students as they embark on their own entrepreneurial journeys.

Accompanying the case studies, we developed this workshop explore key concepts and strategies for putting entrepreneurship education into practice through case studies.

We use the term “educators” to refer broadly to the trainers, teachers, coaches and program managers of entrepreneurial support organisations, hubs and educational institutions.
