AIICO Insurance Plc has trained 250 students of the Lagos State University (LASU) on Entrepreneurship Development as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) with the aim of contributing to nation building.
According to AIICO, the purpose of the workshop which took place recently in Lagos was to ignite the students’ passion and drive for success in their journey through entrepreneurship.
It is recalled that AIICO prior to this training, launched a free entrepreneurship development programme aimed at employment generation, poverty reduction and economic growth which was made available to individuals who desire to have the freedom to pursue their own vision; become their own bosses; have flexible lifestyle and potentials for alternate sources of income beyond salary.
The Executive Director and Chief Operations Officer of AIICO, Babatunde Fajemirokun, made it known that Nigerians with entrepreneurial potentials and dreams of self-reliance can now take advantage of the programme to gain momentum and become viable, irrespective of challenges.
“We want to help them to see opportunities around them and equip them with the knowledge and skill to make the most of it, profitably. We have the manpower and have made adequate provisions to ensure the continuity of this program.
