ABUJA, FCT, NIGERIA, December 1, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Building a startup is hard work under any circumstances, but doing so in Africa often means confronting issues like lack of access to funding, mentorship, and essential business skills training. That is why programs like the Nomfro Technologies Entrepreneurship Empowerment Program (NTEEP) are so vital for empowering African startups.
According to Adams John Smart, NTEEP Program Director and also CEO of Nomfro Technogies, “Every NTEEP participant carries with them the potential to transform lives, create new opportunities, and shape the continent’s economy. Though the road ahead of us is long, NTEEP serves as a reminder that empowerment, community, and perseverance can achieve great things. The next generation of billionaires could emerge from Africa, and it may just be one of the startups in NTEEP’s network. The future is unwritten, and NTEEP is helping African entrepreneurs hold the pen.”
Launched in 2020, NTEEP stands as a beacon of empowerment for entrepreneurs across Africa. Through its comprehensive program, it has successfully trained and empowered over 600 startups across Africa.
