The US Embassy in Eswatini and Start-up Grind will host an entrepreneur incubator course at Nhlangano.

Interviewed yesterday, Start-up Grind Director Bertha Sithole said the course was intended for the out-of-school youth in Nhlangano and surroundings and would  run for three weeks.

“The entrepreneurial process requires prospective business owners to have a tremendous amount of drive, to understand the development process, to know their communities, to skilled marketing plans, and to have a basic understanding of the day-to-day operations of a successful business,” she said.

She further stated that every entrepreneur has to pitch as the programme intends to expose participants to the Pitch Anatomy and a competition, where they stand a chance to win amazing prizes.

“The entrepreneur incubator curriculum offers a framework that is easy to understand. It will provide participants with relevant experiences and skills so they are better prepared to start and manage their own businesses.

This three-week course is open to any out-of-school individual between the ages of 18 to 35. They must have a desire to start a business and must be available to attend class every weekday for the duration of this course. Study materials and meals will be provided and admission is free,” she added.

Upon completion, they will receive a US Embassy Eswatini certificate of completion.

To sign up for the course, candidates must submit a motivational letter to the Nhlangano National Library and it must talk about the candidate and why they desire to be an entrepreneur.

“The motivation letter must be addressed to Nhlangano Entrepreneur Incubator 2019 or email to Approved candidates will be contacted by October 18,” she said.
