Turkish and Syrian entrepreneur candidates residing in the Turkish capital, Ankara, will soon have the opportunity to engage in online training to enhance their talents and enhance their business skills.

The training will be carried out as part of a project called “Enhancing Entrepreneurship Capabilities for Sustainable Social and Economic Integration” (ENHANCER), Hurriyet Daily News reported.

Funded by the European Union, the newspaper reported that the project is being implemented by the International Center for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) in coordination with the General Directorate of Development Agencies of the Turkish Ministry of Industry and Technology.

The first phase of the training will be carried out in the capital, Ankara, and will be available only to Turks and Syrians residing in the city.

Entrepreneur candidates will start receiving their training from October 6th. In order to apply to the programme, interested candidates only need to fill out the necessary forms by October 2nd.

According to the newspaper, the training covers a wide range of understanding the concepts of entrepreneurship to understanding the basics of financial analysis.

Some of the other topics that will be covered in the training include idea and business model development, team building, customer analysis and presentation techniques.

After the training, the budding entrepreneurs who participate in the program will also have the opportunity to receive a grant of between 1,000 and 5,000 euros if they qualify for it.

The aforementioned project seeks practical results and strives to develop the skills of potential entrepreneurs among the Syrians under temporary protection in Turkey.

It also aims to improve business ties to entrepreneurs, coordinate policies and formulate national, regional, local and socio-economic integration levels.

The project enables Syrians under temporary protection to position themselves in an entrepreneurial environment and also attempts to strengthen the capacity of local host communities in this regard.

With the start of the brutal war in Syria nine and a half years ago, Turkey began hosting many refugees and asylum seekers, and today the country ranks first with four million refugees.
