Supporting Entrepreneurs in the Vocational Sector
Partner: ProVet, GIZ

About the Project

Make*it is a joint programme of Dololo and the GIZ project ProVET Namibia, which started in June 2021. Its goal is to support businesses in the vocational sector. Up to 30 participating entrepreneurs will have the chance to receive incubation and the opportunity to access funds at various phases of the programme to take their company to the next level.

Dololo’s role as a project manager is to roll out the application nationally with the goal to reach as many eligible applicants as possible, as well as design and implement the incubation programme. The focus will be on talents that produce and sell high-quality products and have previously completed some form of Vocational certification or training. The application will not be limited to specific regions or towns, but encourages any Startup in the manufacturing sector to apply, provided they have a stable internet connection and are able to travel to Windhoek for the in-person bootcamps.
