With dwindling price of oil, Nigeria went into recession with job losses at its peak. Most states before now funded entrepreneurship development programs aimed at growing non-oil products for local consumption and exports. Oils and Gas producing states never had such programs in their budgets. Priority was on large infrastructure projects which is now stalled as oil money is drying up. Sacked workers in oil fields are stranded, with no program in place to aid them start up small businesses
Our strategy is to mentor potential entrepreneurs, provide skill acquisition and update training, build capability in business development and entrepreneurship, advice on sources of finance and equipment, provide assistance in market development. We have a network of volunteers who will provide these services at minimal cost. But funds is needed for training, coaching and practical sessions Our goal is to create sustainable business, create jobs, fight poverty, create wealth and restore hope
By creating at least 5000 start-ups we are sure to create at least 20,000 jobs both directly and indirectly within the first year of the project. The long term impact will be seen in families paying their bills, poverty and unemployment reducing, and sustainable economies with inclusive growth being built. More states will withstand oil price shocks if more jobs are created from entrepreneurs.
We organize trade shows for small businesses
