The Centre for Entrepreneurship Development, Yaba College of Technology on Monday joined the rest of the world to celebrate this year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week from November 14th to 19th 2022 with the theme “Inspiring the Entrepreneurial Community.”
Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is an annual programme to raise awareness for entrepreneurs across the world.
The week started with a roadshow across the college to sensitize students on entrepreneurship. This was followed by a lecture & panel session on the theme “Inspiring the Entrepreneurial Community.”
Selected top entrepreneurs shared their business stories and urged students to take advantage of social media and tech to push their businesses to the global community.
Speaking with Yabatech Radio, Director, the Centre for Entrepreneurship Development, Mr. Bolaji Cole disclosed that the centre isn’t only training students to be entrepreneurs but to also have good entrepreneurial skills as employees.
“We want to promote a good business environment that’s why this year’s global entrepreneurship week is taking a new dimension, we are giving opportunities to local business owners to exhibit their products at a subsidized rate.”
The week-long activities will also feature an exhibition of products and services made by the Yabatech students.
