NGN 3mln grant after 6 months of training??? Clearly not for aspiring entrepreneurs whp still have a 9-5! I do hope there is a monitoring (and mentoring) structure in place to help the businesses get through their teething phase. I’d rather the training period were shorter and the hand-holding appeared more long term. Seems like YouWin and YES-P (unconfirmed reports say funds are yet to be disbursed) all over again…
