Antonian's development venture

31 August 2016

Antonian Esi K. A. Gillo (MSc African Studies) along with her husband started their venture ‘DIFFvelopment’ last year. Esi notes that their mission is "Re-empowering people of African descent one student at a time." The programme offers students of African descent the opportunity to participate in our Consultrepreneurship, a dynamic internship program that exposes interns to entrepreneurship through an intellectually-driven consulting practicum. Over a 12-week period, students, referred to as Consultrepreneurs, learn the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and consulting through African-centered class instruction and lecture series sessions, as they provide independent restaurants with free consulting services.
