The National Entrepreneurship & Innovation Programme (NEIP) is a flagship policy initiative of the Government of Ghana.
Its primary objective is to provide integrated national support for start-ups and small businesses. NEIP primarily focuses on providing business development services; startup incubators and funding for young businesses to enable them to grow and become successful.
The National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (NEIP) is therefore set within the context of Ghana’s long-term strategic vision of consolidating its middle-income status, building an industry-driven economy capable of providing decent jobs that are suitable and sustainable for development.
The impact of the presidential business support nationwide has been huge in terms of Sustainable jobs that are being created and the contribution to the GDP Growth. Despite these successes, we believe that greater impact can also be achieved by going down to the grassroots in the rural and peri-urban communities that have not really benefitted from the first two windows of the programmes.
After a careful review of the two windows, Management of NEIP are of the view that window 3 be conducted in line with our objective of the COMMUNITY BUSINESS INITIATIVE programme is in line with the key mandate of the Ministry of Business Development to develop and implement policies and programmes to improve the entrepreneurial capacity of Ghanaians particularly the youth in rural communities in order to create jobs and wealth.
