Oklahoma State University Hosting a Group of African Entrepreneurs

Oklahoma State University is hosting 12 African entrepreneurs this month under a U.S. State Department grant program operated by the department of agricultural education, the department of agricultural economics, and the Riata Center for Entrepreneurship at the university.

The participants from the nations of Kenya, Uganda, and South Africa studied U.S. history and culture, technology and social media, business development, and customer service. After work in the classroom, the African entrepreneurs have participated in internships with local agricultural firms.

The program will conclude with the 12 participants traveling to Washington, D.C. to participate in the Professional Fellows Congress from June 4-6.
