The Namibia Business Innovation Centre (NBIC) intends to bring an interesting twist to this year’s Ongwediva Annual Trade Fair (OATF). Aspiring entrepreneurs are encouraged to visit their  stand in the Queen’s Hall.
The NBIC has an exclusive Business Idea Competition fine-tuned especially for the Trade Fair.
Prospective entrepreneurs can win great prizes by submitting their ideas for a business venture.
For established entrepreneurs, the innovation centre offers mentoring and coaching services for free to help and assist business owners to grow their businesses.
Lisa Hollmann, NBIC Outreach Officer is quite excited to finally have the opportunity to meet the  entrepreneurs face to face. She said “NBIC values this opportunity created by the Ongwediva Annual Trade Fair that affords us the platform to present our aspiring entrepreneurs with interactive and educational activities and informative sessions.”
Zodidi Gaseb, Events Management and Planning Officer said “The intention is to bring an innovative twist to how we engage with our stakeholders. We have worked out a schedule that will ensure maximum interaction with the visitors.” She said NBIC is sharing a booth with other centres such as CCE, NGCL and the COLL where maximum traffic and an opportunity to engage a broader audience is expected.”
