All over the world, the relevance of entrepreneurship cannot be overemphasized especially in
Nigeria, the Nigeria Universities and other tertiary institutions have been
rolling out millions of graduates into the labour market to compete for job opportunities that are
becoming very limited on yearly basis. The situation is even worse by the by the way the artisans
abandoned their crafts to rush into commercialized motor cycle riding, popularly known as Okada/Achaba
business. All these development have turned the nation/State from a productive economy with serious
consequences on the nation/States growth and development.
The best way to revamp economy of any nation, is to encourage productive economy by enhancing capacities,
especially the most active population in any nation in the area of skills
acquisition and vocational studies become paramount to build up a generation of entrepreneurs that will establish
platforms of entrepreneurship that will continue from generation to generation and lift Nigeria out of her present
economic depression to prosperity.
This is therefore, the focus of Crystal Entrepreneurship Centre which is established in the heart of the State Capital, Akure,
with the backing of Ondo State Government
Crystal Entrepreneurship Centre is poised to train our youths in various vocations to acquire skills that will make them business
owners and not job seekers.The ultimate goal is to enhance the economic power of the Nigerian Youths in order to boost the
economy of the nations and address myriads of anti-social behaviours associated with this category of group in our society
Establishment of Crystal Entrepreneurship Centre, at this point in time,
is one of the best steps taken through private initiative to support the
industrialization agenda of Ondo State Government under the leadership
of Arakunri Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN)

world map as a producing nation and no longer consumer of all products.
