The Cedar STEM & Entrepreneurship Hub
The Cedar STEM and Entrepreneurship Hub is a networking and empowerment centre for young people. Youths are encouraged to develop and incubate their innovations and business ideas so as to help boost the Nigerian economy. Youth Empowerment has become a necessity due to the level of unemployment in Nigeria. We have discovered that young people here have ideas but lack the resources and infrastructure to actualize their dreams.
The participants who are either STEM or business inclined are trained on different levels. They then proceed to develop their ideas through the various resources, support and infrastructure that the Centre provides. Facilitators, Experts, mentors and coaches work with them and help them develop their ideas into a bankable business plan then enterprise. The participants are then placed on a 6 Months incubation period which includes enabling them come up with a market penetration strategy. The purpose of the 6 month incubation is to ensure that the business is sustainable beyond the centre. We hope to find suitable projects that would attract international funding.
