Start-up Mentoring for NCRST
Partner: National Commission on Research, Science & Technology
About the project
We felt very honored to kick-off our first mentorships project with the NCRST in February 2021. National Commission on Research, Science and Technology is Namibia’s national agency for research, science and technology, and innovation.
The idea behind the programme was to capacitate innovators/ start-ups in different aspects of business, to assist them in solving shortcomings so that they can reach their full potential and enhance their entrepreneurial skills.
The Manager of Innovation and Industrial Research division, Ms. Lovisa Immanuel, said:
“Dololo has been giving pitching training to the National Innovation Challenge for Women (NICW)/ FemBioBiz Acceleration programme of the NCRST.
The NICW programme is a project aimed at supporting women entrepreneurs in various related business fields to grow their businesses through an acceleration programme that will allow them to gain exposure and access to international markets through various series of training and pitching. Dololo has trained participants in 2018 and 2019 sessions as well as offer mentorship to the 2021 session winners. “
