About Shell LiveWIRE
The purpose of LiveWIRE is to improve opportunities for young people to realise their potential through the creation and development of their own businesses. Such businesses will contribute towards a more buoyant economy and communities with more fulfilled young people.
LiveWIRE Nigeria is a youth enterprise development programme supported by The Shell Petroleum Devlopment Company of Nigeria Limited (SPDC).
What we aim to do in Nigeria
The objectives for the LiveWIRE Programme in Nigeria are to;
Raise business awareness amongst final year university students to encourage them to see starting a business as a valid career option
Assist youths to discover and develop business 'ideas' through Bright Ideas Workshops
Make available to youths that want to go on to start a business, business planning and management guidelines and skills through the Become A Successful Owner Manager Course (BSOM)
Run awards for best business plans, the price of which gives access to micro-credit facilities, through third parties like banks, NGOs and allied financial institutions
Run an award for young people who have sustained a business for 2 to 3 years and continue the award on an annual basis
Provide a volunteer mentoring programme for those who have completed the training course and decide to pursue starting their own business. Mentors can be drawn from oil & gas, banking, social voluntary sectors, etc.
