(BET) is the initiative of Diamond bank Nigeria designed to equip emerging
entrepreneurs of all ages with the educational skills and capacity needed to
succeed. The BET is a six-month intensive entrepreneurial training programme where
50 promising entrepreneurs with brilliant business ideas are selected from a
pool of thousands of applications received from different sectors of the
economy and trained. After the six-month intensive training, the top five
candidates are rewarded with 3 million naira each to help push their business
ideas to the global stage.
BET programme in conjuction with Enterprise Development Centre (EDC) has
trained thousands of entrepreneurs with great business ideas and
ultimately helped contribute to job creations in great measures and capacity
building for people of all ages. Now, with the 7th edition themed Innovation and
Social Impact, BET has thrown its doors open to all entrepreneurs in all
sectors of the economy with innovative ideas.
the question is do you have what it takes to be selected? Most Nigerians
are blessed with great ideas that require little startup capital to set them in
motion. There are so many tech startups everywhere too. If you find yourself
among these categories, then the BET programme is for you. The best thing about
the BET programme is that there is no age barrier and even if you do not emerge a top five, the training received as a member of the selected fifty
will be enough to set you in motion.
