NBS Entrepreneur Incubation Programme (EIP)

NBS Entrepreneur Incubation Programme (EIP)

For the past decade, Namibia has struggled with youth unemployment. According to the IOL (2019) report, the unemployment rate has reached 46%. Unfortunately, part of this unemployed youth consists of about 67 000 university graduates (New Era Live, 2018). This shows that it is critical to cultivate an entrepreneurial atmosphere among the youth in order to combat the challenge of unemployment.

Consequently, NBS committed to launching a pilot entrepreneur incubation programme in order to assist entrepreneurs in overcoming these hurdles. By developing an entrepreneurship programme and incubation hub, young graduate entrepreneurs will be assisted in taking their business ideas from the start-up stage to the market.

The aim of this project is to create entrepreneurial businesses in Namibia that will create revenue, wealth and employment. The focus of the project will be to provide entrepreneurs with practical, experiential learning and the necessary skills and support to start and grow their business ventures. In addition to coaching, mentoring, prototype development and related business growth support will be provided. One of the main objectives of this programme is to put emphasis on the export market as the Namibian market may not be sufficient for business growth.

This will be done by putting these entrepreneurs through a rigorous training programme which will consist of a structured practice-based curriculum and providing them with an incubation hub where they will be able to grow their businesses with the necessary support

The Entrepreneur Incubation Programme (EIP) is a pilot programme which will work in conjunction with the Wadhwani Foundation entrepreneurship course, a structured practice-based curriculum. The Programme will take place in Windhoek. The Programme commenced on 23 April 2019 and will run for 12 months, until April 2020. The Programme participants are Namibian graduates from any recognised tertiary institution with high entrepreneurial potential.

The graduate entrepreneurs are hosted by NBS in a warehouse at the City of Windhoek’s Bokamoso Entrepreneurship Centre in Katutura, where they have access to wi-fi, administrative services, co-working space and a boardroom
