Vendors Initiative for Social and Economic Transformation held a graduation ceremony for 25 of its graduate vendors who participated in a two week Entrepreneurial training programme to equip them with business skills in how to run and manage a personal business. The 25 were drawn from final year students from various institutions of higher learning.
VISET Executive Director Samuel Wadzai congratulated the graduates and urged them to put in practice the teachings they learnt if they were to succeed in business. The training, which was mooted as a measure to ensure that students have an option given the high rate of unemployment is the first of initiatives by VISET targeted at this group, as there is an agreement with Councils to allocate a quota for them at market spaces should they so wish.
The event was hosted by eight2five a creative space for young innovators. Speaking at the occasion, Mr Tawanda Kembo an official from eight2five welcomed the graduates to utilise the space which also offers expert advice to young business people.
