Aspiring entrepreneurs in the country are set to benefit from an apprentice contest that will test their business skills and abilities.
The competition, which was introduced by Inspire Africa, will bring together young entrepreneurs across East Africa to compete, with the winners walking away with US$50,000 (Rwf29.6m) as startup to their business.
The Chief Executive Officer of Inspire Africa, Nelson Tugume, said that the competition, dubbed “Project Inspire” is a great opportunity for East Africans to showcase their business acumen and also benefit by winning the grand prize.
“Project Inspire is an eviction based TV game where locally selected and trained entrepreneurs will tussle it out in several competitions,” he said.
“The winner and the last three runners-up will share US$50,000 prize money depending on the level at which they will be evicted.”
He added that application forms for those who want to participate can be obtained for free at RDB and ORINFOR offices.
Project Inspire will officially launch today at Mille Collines Hotel.
