Post COVID-19: Firms train youths on entrepreneurial skills
To cope with post-COVID-19 era and job losses, NESCAFÉ in Nigeria is partnering with Nigeria Employers’ Consultative Association (NECA) and Redwood Consulting Limited to train youths in entrepreneurship skills under the NECApreneur platform.
Speaking on the collaboration, Category Manager (Coffee), Nestle Nigeria, Mr. Olugbenga Alabi, said: “We are glad to be part of this laudable initiative, which ties in with NESCAFÉ’s “Start Strong, Finish Strong” campaign. I urge every young entrepreneur or aspiring one to take advantage of this free opportunity to prepare themselves for the times ahead.”
The Director General, NECA, Mr. Timothy Olawale, said: “In view of the need to re-energise the economy post COVID-19 shutdowns, we want to provide an opportunity for everyone, who wants to venture into enterprise to get the right information and training required to succeed. We have also made the NECAPreneur courses free in order to reach as many Nigerians as possible at this critical time.”
Launched as part of the organisation’s mission to influence economic and socio-labour policies to create a favourable business environment, NECAPreneur is an e-solution targeted at providing an easy-to-access opportunity for the teeming public to upscale their entrepreneurial skills and ultimately add to national development.
