The Federal Government has transformed the former President Goodluck Jonathan’s YouWin programme into a multimedia programme and renamed it YouWinConnect! As part of the youth employment drive of the present administration by supporting young entrepreneurs with fresh business ideas.
Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun stated that the YouWinConnect! was designed “to support young entrepreneurs as they PLAN, START and GROW their businesses by delivering Online, through Radio and by Television, enterprise management education and skills as well as Franchise development.”
The YouWinConnect Programme, which replaces the 8-year-old YouWin, aims to promote entrepreneurship as well as viable career options for young Nigerians thereby creating jobs and wealth.
Under the programme, the Federal Ministry of Finance which runs the scheme, would organize training programmes for young entrepreneurs in business management skills, including book keeping, reinvesting profits, avoiding falling into unnecessary debts and the capacity to identify and key into new business opportunities.
