Participants ED4D Project receive Entrepreneurial Training

Capacity Building, Migration and Development

Forty ambitious entrepreneurs were selected for our Entrepreneurship by Diaspora for Development (ED4D) project. After a competitive process, 20 persons were chosen for Ghana and another 20 for Ethiopia.

Their business ideas were reviewed by a jury in the Netherlands (composed of IOM and PUM (Netherlands senior experts) with parallel juries in Ghana (IOM and Ghana Investment Promotion Centre) and Ethiopia (IOM and Ethiopian Investment Commission). The selection committee is convinced of the potential of the selected business ideas, which vary greatly across different sectors. In September, entrepreneurial training sessions are being offered by NGO Zidi. Each entrepreneur will be matched with a PUM expert to further develop their business plans.
