Building Entrepreneurs Today (BET) program – Nigeria

Building Entrepreneurs Today (BET) program is another laudable innovation from Diamond Bank plc.

A few days ago I received a mail from SME Club Nigeria and I just browsed through it and didn’t give it a 2nd thought until  2 days after when my friend brought it to my attention and suggested that I applied, which I have done.

I have decided to take it a step further by sharing the same email here, for the benefit of thousands of Nigerians out there with great business ideas but no funding. If you are an entrepreneur then I advise you to seize this opportunity, it might just be the big break you have been waiting for.

All the best!!!
