FUNIC Cameroon is the Umbrella Institution for four Units: FUNIC Cameroon Higher Institute of Entrepreneurship and Technology (FHIET), Fotabe Universal Higher Institute of Cameroon (FUNHIC) ,Fotabe Entrepreneurial Leadership Academy (FELA), and African Arts Academy(AAA).


FHIET is FUNIC Cameroon's Institute that focuses on the training of Entrepreneurs, making use of modern technology. The diversity of programs offered at FHIET-from Business to Agricultural Entrepreneurship to Computer Software to project management-makes FHIET the best choice for anyone wishing to acquire a good education in Cameroon's economic capital-Douala.FHIET distinguishes itself further through her incubator-The Incubator at FUNIC. The incubator at FUNIC was set up for speeding up the growth and success of startups created by our students and alumni.The incubator provides registered members with links to potential funding sources. We provide access to services such as accountants, investors and lawyers, not to mention invaluable coaching and networking connections through the staff and other entrepreneurs at the incubator. Most importantly, the Incubator provides office space with Free internet services for all members. 


FUNHIC is an Institution of Higher learning which seeks to solve the problem of low literacy rate, and consequently poverty especially in the rural areas of Cameroon by developing young business leaders who will create and lead change in their communities. FUNHIC is a national leader in social entrepreneurship and has been at the center of making Bamenda the most socially Entrepreneurial city in the country through the Kansas Hill initiative. Thus, it has become a natural asset for social entrepreneurship in Cameroon. For example, FUNHIC now offers a competition for social ventures in Cameroon and also hosts the annual national conference on social entrepreneurship. 

Rural areas in Cameroon are the hardest hit by poverty due to the low literacy rate. These rural areas are endowed with numerous business opportunities, especially in the domains of agriculture, transport and logistics, tourism, and food processing. Yet, poverty continues to be a big challenge, principally because of lack of a good education. It is estimated that only about 1% of students in rural areas make it to the university.

We aim to close the education gap between rural and urban areas by providing business education and training that will develop business leaders and social entrepreneurs who will create jobs for other young people in their communities.

While our focus is mostly on students from rural areas, we accept outstanding students from every part of the country and Africa.

At FUNHIC, we understand that professional higher education is an investment that most parents in the rural areas are unable to make. FUNHIC is therefore pioneering the provision of FREE higher education to students from mostly rural areas in Cameroon and the African continent.

Our institution is funded by student-managed on-campus businesses and funding from sponsors. Our focus is therefore to train young people who would otherwise not have the opportunity to have a good education.


FELA  is the leading center for entrepreneurial leadership in Africa. FELA’s curriculum was especially designed to train young men and women from around the world to develop Entrepreneurial skills, acquire concrete leadership experience, and develop positive professional abilities needed to become entrepreneurs and change their communities.

The uniqueness of our curriculum is further strengthened by the possibility it gives students to progress from a vocational qualification to the MBA.


African Arts Academy is a Social Enterprise Created by FUNIC to valorise and promote African Arts.

The curriculum was designed with people with all academic qualifications. The aim is to work with experienced men and women interested in arts and crafts to promote the African culture through programs like fashion design, interior design, beauty and skin care and many others.


The vision of FUNIC Cameroon is to see an African society where rare skills are found in common people, and where no one is unemployed or flees home because s/he is poor.

FUNIC Cameroon's mission is to train 1 million men and women from across Africa by 2025, to develop their communities in an ethical and dignifying manner. Our curriculum integrates classroom learning with real life industry experience and encourages students to be imaginative, daring, but at the same time community-focused. We equip each student to be the best in their chosen field of study by employing the most engaging teaching methods by faculty members who are industry experts. FUNIC Cameroon was founded by a Cameroonian Social Entrepreneur, Fotabe Elmine
