Nomfro Technologies’ Entrepreneurship Empowerment Project (NTEEP-2021) is our first edition that seeks to identify and support innovative startups whose activities can create solutions and employment in Africa.
As countries slowly re-open from the lockdown, businesses—especially small and medium enterprises (SME)—are confronted with challenging business environment where consumers not only have far less money to spend but will also restrict their movements and minimize their physical interactions.
In this ‘new normal’, consumers are increasingly turning to the Internet to purchase goods and services. And with the possibility of more infections and lockdowns on the horizon, both new and current SMEs in the internet space need to make their businesses as resilient as possible very quickly. This project will provide over 500 start ups entrepreneurs across Africa with $500 worth of credit each. This credit will be used to cover costs of business website or e-commerce website development and mentorship program for participants.
