Emerging Entrepreneurs Programme
COVID 19 has changed the global business landscape, resulting in uncertainties everywhere. This crisis is forcing every business owner to step back, reflect, review and refocus themselves as well as realign their businesses with the new normal.
In this particularly difficult economic context, The Emerging Entrepreneurs Programme (EEP) offers owner-managers the perfect opportunity to re-invent their businesses. The EEP is a 12-week long online programme specifically designed to equip business owners with essential knowledge and critical tools that can be applied immediately as they lead their businesses through these tough times.
The programme leverages the expertise of our C-Level faculty, and FATE Foundation’s 20 years of providing unrivalled post-programme support to entrepreneurs and businesses in the Nigerian market.
