AIICO unveils free entrepreneurship scheme
AIICO Insurance Plc has unveiled free Entrepreneurship Development Programme (EDP), which is aimed at empowering Nigerians with the requisite knowledge and skills for business development.
The company’s Head of Strategic Marketing and Communications, Atinuke Jose, noted that the initiative is focused at employment generation, poverty reduction and economic growth.
She said the programme is open to individuals who desire to have the freedom to pursue their own vision; become their own bosses; have flexible lifestyle; and potentials for other sources of income beside salary.
While entrepreneurial opportunities abound, not everyone is able to spot them and only few succeed in leveraging them.
According to the company, the programme based on cutting edge information, tools and concepts, helps to spot opportunities in Nigeria today and guides participants through the dos and don’ts to ensure success.
The Executive Director and Chief Operations Officer, Babatunde Fajemirokun, said: “Nigerians with entrepreneurial potentials and dreams of self-reliance can now take advantage of the programme to gain momentum and become viable, irrespective of challenges.
“We want to help them to see opportunities around them and equip them with the knowledge and skill to make the most of it, profitably. We have the manpower and have made adequate provisions to ensure the continuity of this programme.”
