The programme, which was offered at no cost, encourages and supports women to start their own businesses through a customized, three-phase model which incorporates online and classroom training as well as business incubation. The coursework is designed to teach both entrepreneurial and managerial skills, provide mentoring and networking opportunities, and access to capital to help empower women navigate their early ventures as well as equip them with tools to strategize and grow their businesses. I am proud to share with you that 15 women with great business ideas are now being incubated at NSRCEL for 12 months”.
