Diamond Bank is calling on Nigerian entrepreneurs to apply for its seventh season of Building Entrepreneurs Today (BET) programme, themed ‘Innovation and Social Impact.’
Applications are expected to close on September 26, 2017.
BET is a capacity building and business education initiative aimed at generating interest in entrepreneurship and designed to support budding entrepreneurs of all ages, Diamond Bank said in a statement.
Fifty selected entrepreneurs will be given a six-month intensive entrepreneurial/business training of from select sectors of the economy, after which five entrepreneurs are expected to emerge at the end of each season, and would be awarded financial grants of N3,000,000 each as seed capital to take their business to the next level.
Since its inception in 2010, the BET programme in partnership with the Enterprise Development Centre (EDC), has “trained thousands of entrepreneurs, contributing immensely to the pool of skilled Micro, Small and Medium (MSMES) enterprise owners in Nigeria and ultimately, encouraging wealth creation across the populace,” the organization said.
