The National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP) has partnered Ho Node Hub, a digital innovation hub to empower 84 Small and Growing Business (SGB) owners in the Volta Region as part of its nationwide Business Support Program.
The program which was organised under the auspices of the Ministry of Business Development sought to train a number of Small and Growing Business owners who have applied for business start-up capital from the NEIP on how to write fundable business plans before a final selection is made for consideration for a support package.
The 3-week training programme which ended on Saturday, June 2, 2018 took entrepreneurs through topics such including customer discovery, business model, business plan development and financial planning for Small Growing Businesses.
The Participants expressed their appreciation and suggested how the training has exposed them to new methods that would help them improve their business operations.
“I wish I were exposed to this information when I started my business five years ago. I would have made less mistakes,” a participant admitted.
Speaking to voltaonlinegh.com, Co-Founder of Ho Node Hub and the Facilitator of the programe, Mr. Brian Dzansi said NEIP would be selecting some of the participants next week to benefit from funding to help in growing their businesses.
The training program attracted entrepreneurs from all over the Volta Region including Keta, Aflao, Dambai among others.
