Programmes for Existing Entrepreneurs​

The vision for economic development for many countries is ensconced in improving the overall entrepreneurial climate for New Enterprise Creation and enhance performance of existing ones. Sustaining an enterprise is as much a challenge as setting up a business. Existing entrepreneurs, if trained in spotting growth avenues, planning for growth and dealing with challenges, they can easily sail through the vicissitudes of business. EDII ensures this for entrepreneurs across the globe.
