Empower Nigeria is an Initiative designed to support the micro and small business people in the Nigerian economy. The Initiative provides for clearly spelling out the path to entrepreneurship and supporting those at the bottom of the ladder with the tools required for them to create a job for themselves. Empower Nigeria covers the four strategic areas required for the success of a small business in Nigeria which includes; access to capital, skills and education, a bankable business plan and affordable business premises.
In addition, Empower Nigeria has a Local Road Show which visits communities and schools, in the process we promote and encourage young unemployed and disadvantaged people to embrace micro entrepreneurship as a solution.
Empower Nigeria works with state and regional government authorities to train and equip youth entrepreneurs by providing them with access to capital from major financing institutions. We also work with higher institutions and universities to expand the knowledge base of students who may wish to seek opportunities in entrepreneurship.
