It’s now 2 days to go in the season 6 of the Diamond Bank Building Entrepreneurs Today (BET) tagged #DiamondBankBET6.
This is a programme designed to support budding entrepreneurs financially with mouthwatering grants as well as entrepreneurial training
Every year, 50 entrepreneurs are selected from the pool of the numerous applications received and these entrepreneurs undergo a six (6) months intensive entrepreneurial/business training.
At the end of the training period, the Top five (5) Entrepreneurs are awarded financial grants to the tune of N3 million as seed capital for taking their business to the next level.
Now in its sixth edition, the Diamond Bank BET programme has developed a brand personality of its own and has attained both local and international recognition. Last season, one of the Top 5 winners was featured on African Voices (a programme on CNN), thus giving huge brand visibility to the BET initiative and the Bank.
This year’s edition has been streamlined to 3 key sectors;
These three sectors are important for any growing economy and providing capacity training and financial support for entrepreneurs in these sectors will impact the economy significantly especially as the country takes significant steps to diversify the economy and grow the non-oil sector.
