Over 1000 of Nigerian Micro, Small, and Medium Businesses (MSMEs) will benefit from the free entrepreneurship programme being offered by the Development Bank of Nigeria (DBN) Plc.
The training, according to the bank in a statement on Friday, is part of its efforts toward achieving its core mandate of building the capacity of small businesses to enable them to formalise and upscale.
It said the training will be held on the DBN Learning Management System (LMS), a free learning portal with carefully curated self-paced courses that are open to all Nigerian MSMEs interested in acquiring the right knowledge to succeed in business.
While speaking on the free learning programme for MSMEs, DBN Managing Director, Anthony Okpanachi said: “As part of our plans to strengthen our catalytic role in the Nigerian economy, we are expanding our reach to MSMEs and inviting interested Micro, Small and Medium Scale Enterprises to take advantage of our free entrepreneurship training programme to upscale their skills.”
By the end of the online training session on September 23, 200 businesses would be selected for a physical session taking place from October 17 to 21, 2022 in Lagos and Abuja.
