Eight Entrepreneur Students Graduate from Our First Cohort Entrepreneurship Training Course


In the bid to mitigate the high rate of poverty and youth unemployment in Bo city and Sierra Leone at large,  Movement towards Education and youth Empowerment-Sierra Leone (MEYE-SL), has synergies efforts with Planetstartup Entrepreneurship Academy, a registered International Organization in the Florida/USA to mobilize vulnerable youths within Sierra Leone to partake in their online entrepreneurship and mentorship training sessions in helping to build the knowledge base of youth within Sierra Leone in Entrepreneurship and project management. We have been working together in mobilizing committed youth through connecting them with Planetstartup via skype to give out entrepreneurship training, mentorship, and business coaching services. 

This first training programme lasted for three (3) months, and it geared towards transforming the mind-set of participants to change their thinking, rather to develop thinking on new jobs inspired by these emerging technologies and also start thinking about entrepreneurial creativity, so as encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship to be a top priority for them concerning the potential for jobs creation and a source of boosting up their self-reliance capacities. The training concentrated on strengthen the participants to be change ambassadors, working to step down to them the message of job creation, productive skills, innovation, social entrepreneurship and peaceful co-existence and supporting good leadership and helping to advocate for creation of policies that encourage widespread involvement of our youth in the promotion of economic empowerment and participating in poverty reduction within our community. The training programme concentrated on topics like leadership in project management, business plan writing, crowd funding opportunities, strategic operations, business ethics, marketing, innovation and technology, emerging markets and risk analysis, strategic business planning, and corporate social responsibility.
