NBIC paves way for innovation
The Namibia Business Innovation Centre (NBIC) will host an interactive “idea creation workshop” with the expertise of the Institute of Leadership and Management Training (IMLT) on 5 April at the Katutura Multi-Purpose Youth Centre.
The workshop supports “out-of-the-box thinking” which enables people to solve problems in a creative manner.
NBIC says that they aim to spark the interest among people for innovation, regardless of their educational background. Through the idea creation workshop, participants are enabled to come up with ideas that uplift communities or help building businesses through entrepreneurship.
The NBIC currently runs the Business Idea Competition, which will conclude on 17 April.
To fully equip prospective participants to take part in the competition, the workshop teaches attendees techniques to create new business ideas or improve on existing ones.
Every year, NBIC stages workshops targeting aspiring entrepreneurs and innovators; helping them initiate innovative business or social upliftment ideas. This ensures that ideas don’t just stay in the idea phase, but progresses to the implementation phase. The benefit of the workshop is that it stimulates people to think constructively, turning viable business ideas into sustainable business ventures.
The NBIC’s innovation officer, Silas Newaka said: “The workshop and the Business Idea Competition together form a great motivational tool for aspiring entrepreneurs and innovators. We therefore urge anyone interested to take part and potentially see their ideas become a reality.”
The workshop is free of charge and interested parties are urged to register before 3 April 2012.
