L’AINE Foundation Programmes
Our Programmes are designed to assist in the areas of Training, Mentoring, Funding, The EntrePad program and Outreach Programmes
We organise several training courses monthly. Apart from the open programmes, L’AINE Foundation custom–builds training programmes for entrepreneurs to help them solve the problems in their businesses. The Foundation provides rigorous entrepreneurial training, extensive hands-on project work, and mastery of proven methodologies for managing business. The training also includes a series of lectures periodically, in which recognized entrepreneurs share their experiences and insights.
Based on our ability to recognise the lonesome struggle all entrepreneurs undertake on the quest to make their dreams come to fruition and its ensuing detours; L’AINE Foundation thought it prudent to include a mentoring component to our entrepreneurship programmes. This programme is designed to provide efficient and effective guidance and support to aspiring entrepreneur.
The foundation also provides financial backing to entrepreneurs to help get their businesses off the ground. This funding can be made available in the form of grants, loans, or even technical expertise. As much as possible, we assist entrepreneurs to regularise their businesses to make them more attractive and ready for investment. Proper registration of the business is also made compulsory for all entrants at the centre. Additionally, we assist the participants to regularise their other statutory obligations to attract funding from state institutions, commercial banks and savings and loans companies.
Our foundation initiates a dynamic community outreach program that encourages aspiring entrepreneurs to share their acquired knowledge with others. This initiative encompasses a range of lessons, from practical entrepreneurial skills like business creation and management to essential life skills such as financial management. The program aims to create a ripple effect, with each participant becoming a teacher, leading to a network of educated and informed individuals. We uphold the ethos that our employees are partners, not just production factors, and we maintain a commitment to ethical business practices.
