The Enterpreneurship Programme is scheduled to take 12 weeks. That is, 10 weeks of intensive enterpreneurship training at Kaduna Business School, followed by an exam + 2 weeks mentorship training. At the end of the program, successful participants will get access to a 3 million Naira (approx. $15,000) loan from Bank of Industry.

Are you eligible?

Well, for one, all business ideas are eligible, (it doesn’t have to be tech based). And if your business idea is already in the startup phase, you’re still eligible.
Do you have a post-secondary school qualification? Are you between the ages of 18-45 years? Then what are you waiting for?
Oh, wait. One more thing. Your business venture has to be located in Kaduna State. It’s called KADSTEP for a reason.
