Ondo sends 10 entrepreneurs to overseas training

Ondo State Governor, Mr Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has sponsored 10 entrepreneurs on international business tours and training through the Ondo State Entrepreneurship Agency.

A statement signed by the Special Adviser to the Ondo State Governor on Entrepreneurship, Mr Summy Smart-Francis, said the beneficiaries had the most innovative ideas after a state-wide screening was done to select the 10 most innovative businesses and ideas.

He revealed that the beneficiaries were also empowered with business grants, business support packages, mentorship, training, and an all-expense paid international business tour to Kenya and Rwanda.

“This approach is not only shaping a generation of resilient entrepreneurs but also creating an environment where innovation thrives, fostering an ecosystem that propels Ondo State to the global stage.”

According to Francis, the true currency of the economy lies not solely in financial markets but in the brilliant minds and innovative ideas that flourish within entrepreneurs of any society.

He said that the state had young, brilliant minds that through the ONDEA would begin to forge solutions to local challenges and compete on global stages.
