THE United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) has licensed 29 entrepreneurs to use its software in business planning, an official of the Management Training and Advisory Centre (MTAC) has said.
The entrepreneurs got the licences after a four-day training workshop on project preparation and appraisal and the use of the software called Computer Model for Feasibility Analysis and Reporting.
The software permits entrepreneurs to analyse industrial and non-industrial projects like new investments, rehabilitation, expansion, joint ventures or privatisation of projects.
â€œThe training aimed at equipping the entrepreneurs with skills in project preparation and appraisal using the technology,â€ the MTAC executive director, George Tumwesigye, said at the closure of the workshop at Nakawa, Kampala, recently.
Tumwesigye said UNIDO provides the training to member countries of TECHNONET Africa that include Cameroon, Ghana, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, South Africa and Uganda, which is represented by MTAC.
TECHNONET was set up in 2004 to promote the development of small and medium enterprises in Africa.
