A need exists for renewed socio-economic growth in the local, regional, national and international environment. The purpose of the International Centre for Transformational Entrepreneurship (ICTE) is to make a substantial contribution to entrepreneurship education, entrepreneurial leadership, innovation and policy formulation focusing on transformational entrepreneurship which should have a positive impact on socio-economic development in regions across the world. Within this context, ‘transformational entrepreneurship’ refers to a holistic1 and heuristic2 orientation in terms of entrepreneurship promotion and combines the individual and other sub-systems (such as society and institutions) interacting and collaborating to create a positive framework inwhich opportunities can be exploited beyond the local level. This paper will set out what and how ICTE aims to contribution to this process through its teaching, research and social engagement strategy.
