IDM Drills Entrepreneurs

IDM University has taken about 30 young entrepreneurs under its wing to help grow their businesses, as part of their aim to develop Small Medium Entrepreneurs (SME) in job creation efforts.

According to IDM country director, Dr Onalenna Kgokgwe, it all started last year during their partnership with the Ministry of Youth Empowerment, Sports and Culture Development where they sponsored the winners of the Youth Business Exposition that was conducted by the ministry.

“Late last year, we partnered with the ministry and offered a weeklong training to top 30 winners to the tune of P120,000. The intention was to provide them with relevant skills that would help in the development as well as sustainability of their businesses,” he said.
