The Youth Entrepreneurship Support Hub (YES – Hub) has held its first entrepreneurship boot camp programme for young women in Katsina.

Speaking at the event, the founder of YES – Hub, Ismail Bello, said it aims at providing basic training in business development skills and essential entrepreneurial leadership training through the Youth Entrepreneurship Training Programme (YETP).

He said, “The YETP is a five-day residential programme that runs after every six months in Nigeria. Our team and panel of judges select promising civic-minded startups for this business boot camp in which entrepreneurs/innovators receive access to business support, mentorship, and our investor network to better grow their businesses/ideas and be positioned to receive investment.”

Bello said for this cohort of 2023, the hub selected 25 young women entrepreneurs/innovators with ground-breaking ideas for an annual programme designed to grow businesses and position them for seed investment.

He said, through the rigorous training and mentorship sessions, they acquired value chain premium technology skills that they have used to develop innovative technology products that solved an identified problem in Katsina.

The participants also learnt idea pitching skills from the idea stage through the phase of connecting them with relevant resources they would require to build scalable ventures in Katsina.

According to the Yes-Hub head, the training programme also mixed hands-on, community-based activities with a traditional training session format and facilitated hands-on entrepreneurship learning and discovery.

This is to develop participants’ knowledge at an even pace while exploiting the benefits of learning through hands-on application.
