Business Idea Creation Workshops spark innovation
The Namibia Business Innovation Centre will once again host a series of workshops this year to train aspiring entrepreneurs to evaluate the innovativeness of their business ideas. Having trained close to 200 aspiring entrepreneurs in 2013, the NBIC has decided to continue to offer their popular workshops in an effort to stimulate innovation.
The workshops will be hosted at the Innovation Village starting with two workshops scheduled for January and February. The first will start on 29 January 2014 and will end on 01 February 2014 whilst the second will run from 06 to 08 February 2014.
Hasekiel Johannes, Innovation Marketplace Officer and trainer spoke on the importance of these workshops offered regularly by the NBIC and said, “This year we want to make sure that aspiring entrepreneurs with or without a concrete Business Idea gain knowledge on how to develop their ideas into innovative, bankable and viable businesses. We are certain that with our workshops they will be well-equipped with tools on how to create innovate ideas and assess their ideas. We believe that entrepreneurship and innovation is the solution to social and economical problems”.
Mufaro Nesongano the Marketing and Public Relations Officer reiterated Johannes’ statement adding that “One can not overstate the importance of such initiatives. The skills our aspiring entrepreneurs learn are priceless in their quest of achieving their dreams of becoming the next Pupkewitz or Frans Indongo of Namibia”.
Participants are urged to register by next week Friday, 24 January and are required to pay a workshop commitment fee of N$50. Prospective workshop participant can contact the NBIC in Windhoek at 061 207 2885 or through its facebook page.
