In a bid to foster innovation, entrepreneurship, and sustainable development, the Centre for Social Awareness, Advocacy, and Ethics (CSAAE) recently organized a sensitization and strengthening workshop for the five winning teams of the recently concluded Digital Skilling and Employment Project (DSEP) Hackathon.
The teams, namely Team Data ZOO, Team Virtual Assistant Pro, Team Safeguard, Team Ethical Care, and Team Behead, were not only celebrated for their outstanding performance but were also offered a unique opportunity for further growth.
The workshop, brought together the winning teams, mentors, and resource persons who shared valuable insights on business start-up and sustenance. Reverend Father Godswill Agbagwa, the Executive Director of CSAAE, led the workshop and emphasized the importance of nurturing entrepreneurial skills for a sustainable future.
To empower the winning teams, CSAAE, through its Executive Director, announced a generous offer—an all-expense-paid six-week training on business start-up and sustenance. This comprehensive training aimed to equip the teams with the necessary skills, knowledge, and tools needed to successfully launch and sustain their entrepreneurial ventures.
During the workshop, participants were lectured on the essential aspects of business registration. This included understanding the legal requirements, documentation, and procedures necessary for formalizing their businesses. The guidance provided aimed to streamline the process and ensure compliance with relevant regulations.
The workshop covered various aspects critical for business success, such as market research, financial planning, and customer engagement. Teams received insights on developing effective business models, identifying target markets, and creating sustainable revenue streams.
Rev. FR Godswill Agbagwa, on behalf of CSAAE, made a significant commitment to the winning teams. He assured them of an actual business start-up fund, which would be disbursed upon the completion of the six-week training. This financial support aimed to provide the necessary capital for the teams to transform their innovative ideas into tangible and thriving businesses.
The CSAAE-organized workshop not only celebrated the achievements of the winning teams but also demonstrated a commitment to nurturing and empowering young entrepreneurs. By providing both knowledge and financial support, CSAAE is contributing to the growth of sustainable businesses and fostering a culture of entrepreneurship among the youth.
