Thousands of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) are set to benefit from a free entrepreneurship programme being offered by Development Bank of Nigeria (DBN) Plc.

The training is part of the bank’s efforts toward achieving its core mandate of building the capacity of small businesses, to enable them formalise and upscale, and address the challenges some of them face in accessing funding.

The training will be held on the DBN Learning Management System (LMS), a free learning portal with carefully curated self-paced courses that are open to all Nigerian MSMEs interested in acquiring right knowledge needed to succeed in business.

At the end of the training on September 23, 200 businesses would be selected for a physical session from October 17 to 21, 2022, in Lagos and Abuja.

Speaking on the initiative, DBN Managing Director, Anthony Okpanachi, said: “As part of our plans to strengthen our catalytic role in the Nigerian economy, we are expanding our reach to MSMEs and inviting interested enterprises to take advantage of our free training programme to upscale their skills.”

“Consequently, DBN is investing a lot of resources in driving skill acquisition across the different aspects of managing and sustaining a successful business across sectors.

“I am confident that MSMEs that take advantage of this opportunity will gain critical business skills that will pave the way for higher earnings, capacity, increased innovation, self-reliance, and most importantly, improve their ability to access funding for their businesses.”
