WINDHOEK – The Namibia Business Innovation Centre (NBIC) will be taking its small business mentoring activities to the Ongwediva Annual Trade Fair. The centre says the trade fair is a perfect opportunity for those individuals and SME’s that are not based around Windhoek to receive the necessary information and assistance to make their business ideas a reality.
“Any country that wants to be competitive needs to be innovative, embrace technology and realise its population is its most critical and valuable economic resource. Our presence at the trade fair provides the perfect platform for people to enquire about the skills training, coaching and mentoring that we offer,” says Dagmar Honsbein the managing director of NBIC.
During the trade fair the NBIC will host an exciting business idea competition where entrepreneurs stand a chance to win great prizes by submitting ideas for business ventures. There will also be mind and creativity games, presentations and video clips, business start-up support and free coaching sessions.
“The trade fair is the ideal place for NBIC to reach out to likeminded people with an entrepreneurial spirit and to gain access to our broad network. With people from all over Namibia flocking to this high level trade fair, there will be an opportunity to engage with the team and mentors of the NBIC, who will assist and motivate budding entrepreneurs and organisations with innovative ideas,” said the centre.
The Ongwediva Trade Fair takes place during August 24 to September 02. The NBIC was established to encourage and promote business innovation and provide entrepreneurial support services for small and medium enterprises.
The centre is based at the Polytechnic of Namibia.
