Specifically, the SSEDC facilitates the achievement of the following outcomes:
- Develop entrepreneurial skills of individuals to successfully start, manage, diversify and expand business enterprises
- Facilitate easy access to Start-up Capital for successful participants, especially funds from commercial banks, microfinance banks,
allied financial institutions, Non-Governmental Organizations and other development agencies.
- Generate employment opportunities through entrepreneurship, for Nigerians in-line with the agenda of
the Federal Government and the goals of National Economic Empowerment and Development Strategy (NEEDS).
- Support certified participants with strong entrepreneurship ecosystem that helps them realize their
aspirations of starting or expanding their enterprises.
To accomplish this mandate, participants are put through our 18 month long entrepreneurship development program, where
we operate a 90:10 engagement model. Within this, participants are immersed in the ecosystem of enterprise building 90
percent of the engagement time, and undergo 10 percent class room training. We favour the ‘Learning by Doing’ maxim in our
development approach, and even our training follows the experiential learning methodology. SSEDC engage aspiring and existing
entrepreneurs, regardless of level of education, gender or socio-economic status. Only criteria is for participants to be 18 yrs & above.
