Entrepreneurial Skills Development

Entrepreneurial Skills Development

We believe that entrepreneurial people have greater opportunity at gaining meaningful employment or creating employment. It has a role to play in generating decent work for nationals and drive economic development. 

Being enterprising and entrepreneurial involves spotting an unexploited opportunity and making the most of it not only for personal gain but also for social and developmental gain. It requires the skills to identify a gap in the market and fill it.

Or it can also involve trying something new or improving a process to increase efficiency or boost results. Though this skill can be innate, it can become more effective if trained.  We hope to provide opportunities to train our people into entrepreneurial skills in an effort to unleash their economic potential. 

Causes & Projects We Champion

Being entrepreneurial is an important quality that we need to encourage and assist those with ideas. Whereas some may be gifted, some need to learn some of the necessary skills to take their ideas into the market. The more small businesses we have, the more vibrant the local economy would be.  

Entrepreneurial Skills Development​


All business activities are a result of the application of entrepreneurial skills. Whilst some, confirmed by their immense success may seem to possess it innately, others were exposed to a certain degree of training and development.

The type of venture they get into being a reflection of their training pursuit. We believe that entrepreneurial ambitions can be enhanced through training and acquisition of certain key skills that would enable its application. 

Our Plan

We plan to establish and operate a Vocational Training Centre. This will be the main vehicle by which a lot of our main people driven causes and projects will be achieved. Through it, we will offer short internationally recognised qualifications on entrepreneurial skills development.
