The Entrepreneurship Training Workshop (ETW) is an internationally acclaimed workshop, developed through intensive research by Prof David McClelland of Harvard University for the United Nations Conference for Trade and Development (UNCTAD). It is based on the concept of a behavioral approach to entrepreneurship. Research carried out from a psychological perspective demonstrated that there are 10 Key entrepreneurial competencies (commonly called Personal Entrepreneurial Competencies or PECs) that influence the way entrepreneurs manage and run their businesses.
The training will be provided in five cities across the country through Entreprenruship Development Center coordiantion offices based in Bishoftu (Oromia), Bahir Dar (Amhara), Mekelle (Tigray), Hwassa (South Nations, Nationalities and Peoples State), and Addis Ababa (Headquarters). Training will be held in Addis Ababa (one session), Burayu, Hawassa, Bahir Dar, and Mekelle.
A total of 225 young entrepreneurs are expected to attend the training.
