As part of the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP), iCODE Hub met with a hundred(100) businesses from different parts of the Western region on the 10th and 11th of May, 2018.
iCODE is a training center for this laudable Government initiative in the region. This training for businesses will run for a month.
