Taking the salient case of an Italian Foundation that started to create a Pan-African university alliance for entrepreneurship education, we conducted a field study based on interviews and observation for a period of seven years. The aim was to understand how to overcome challenges that arise when fostering entrepreneurship education programs (EEP) by orchestrating an inter-organizational network in Africa. Our study revealed that proximity and contextualization play a strategic and crucial role in orchestrating an entrepreneurial eco-system in a context shaped by resource scarcity and solid societal as well as economic problems. We contribute to scholarly and practitioner understandings of how to establish effectively EEPs together with the orchestration of an entrepreneurial eco-system in Africa.
