By 2018, our student accommodation business was well-established and run by staff, and
we were ready to take on a new challenge. We decided to partner with like-minded
organisations to further our goals of youth skills development and entrepreneurship with a
pan-African focus (given the diverse profile of our students – who hail from all over the
continent) – and so, the Baobab Ideas Lab was born, adjoining one of our student premises.
