The nternational Breweries Plc, in conjunction with Obafemi Owode local government, has announced the commencement of applications for the 2023 edition of entrepreneurship initiative training for youths from 18 to 35 years in the Obafemi owode local government secretariat.

The initiative, championed by the International Breweries, the corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm of IBPLC, has positively impacted in the lives of numerous budding entrepreneurs through mentorship, training, and provision of grants to run their businesses.

The initiative which was launched some years ago has been rated as one of the leading programs that support young entrepreneurs in Nigeria.

The portal for applicants for this year’s Kickstart is now open for youths between the ages of 18-35.

Successful youths will win grants between N500,000 to N3million.

They will also qualify for training and mentorship programs with some of the industry giants. Link to apply:

According to the Chairman Obafemi Owode Local government, Amb Adesina Ogunsola, the idea behind the Kickstart initiative is to empower our young people economically, thereby contributing our quota to bridge the unemployment gap in the country.

This year, International Breweries Foundation is partnering with the Obafemi Owode Local government to train youths in different businesses, skills, and leadership development modules.’’

Ogunsola urged young business owners to take advantage of the veritable platform that Kickstart provides and its antecedents in the youth empowerment space.
