Mastercard Transforming Nigeria Youth Program

The Transforming Nigerian Youths initiative intends to build a network of entrepreneurial and management change-makers, primarily among youths and women in Nigeria’s Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) sector.

The Enterprise Development Centre (EDC) is collaborating with the Mastercard Foundation to enhance the capacity of 40,000 MSMEs in Nigeria, with a special emphasis on women-led enterprises. The training will be offered through EDC’s online learning platform and IVR (Interactive Voice Response), allowing all learners to participate in the classes wherever they are, at any time.

If you are an entrepreneur or want to start a business, you should sign up for this FREE Entrepreneurship course offered by Enterprise Development Centre in collaboration with MasterCard Foundation-Young Africa Works.
