Austin Nweze Centre for Business & Social Entrepreneurship  


The Centre

The Centre for Business and Social Enterprise Development, CBSED, at Fled International Leadership Institute is renamed as Dr. Austin Nweze Centre  for Business & Social Entrepreneurship – ANCBSE.

It is in memory of late Dr. Austin Nweze, who before his death in January 2024, was an advocate of entrepreneurial leadership in Nigeria, even while he lectured at the Lagos Business School of the Pan-Atlantic University, Lagos, Nigeria. He was also a visiting Faculty member at Fled Institute.


The Centre promotes entrepreneurial education and the development of social entrepreneurship. 

The Austin Nweze Centre hosts training programs, workshops, seminars, and trade shows to empower small business and promote social entrepreneurship in Nigeria.

It  carries out research in support to MSMEs, Non-governmental Organizations, and the Social Sector. 

It engages in public discourse on the challenges of small businesses and how they contribute to social-economic development of communities.

The Austin Centre is one of the five existing Centres at Fled International Leadership Institute.
