BSC Monrovia

Business Support Center Monrovia

The BSC Monrovia was informally established as a project office in 2009 in a partnership of the Association of Liberian Universities (ALU) and SPARK; a Dutch international INGO. The BSC Monrovia was formally registered as a local NGO to implement SPARKS’s and other partners’ program. We develop education and entrepreneurship programs so that young and ambitious people are empowered to lead their post-conflict society into prosperity. The BSC builds the capacity of Liberian economic and educational institutions so they can empower their own populations. Currently the BSC organizes Business Plan Competitions combined with business skills training. Winners are awarded a soft loan of 10.000 USD (and match with investors for financing need of more than $10, 00 – 1 million) including mentoring and coaching to start up their businesses. The BSC also provides employability and work readiness/enhancement trainings to would be graduates, graduates and worker from recognize    more / less
