Entrepreneur
Capacity Building Program
in the North Caucasus

The purpose of the Northern Caucasus Entrepreneurship Program (NCEP) is to establish an institutional framework in the Northern Caucasus for the ongoing training and development of entrepreneurs using online learning tools developed by Cisco Systems.
This cross sector collaboration brings together the skills, perspectives and resources of the private sector (represented by Cisco), the non-profit sector (represented by PH International and local partners), and the public sector

Although extremely popular throughout the world, the Cisco Entrepreneurship Program has yet to be fully introduced to Russia. The NCEP will not only introduce this program into Russia, but establish eight local Cisco Entrepreneur Institutes in five regions in the Northern Caucasus. Each institute, with the help of NCEP, will write sustainability plans, define markets, develop strong promotional strategies and operate on a fee-based system that covers the costs of providing Cisco Entrepreneur Institute online courses.

Course will cover three main areas: 1) Starting a Business 2) Growing a Business and 3) iExec Essentials.

Initially, scholarships will be given to help encourage applicants to enroll, but after the program grows in popularity and the value of the education is realized, fees will allow institutes to recover costs. Through such a system, each institute will become self-sustainable well into the future and continue to train and education future entrepreneurs that will contribute to economic development in the region.

PH International will help build and train all institutes in this program, but over the course of the program, at least one of the local institutes will transition into a Cisco Entrepreneur Institute Training Center and provide the means for further expanding formation of local Entrepreneur Institutes in the region. They will train new leaders, managers, facilitators and link existing Institutes with the broader Cisco Entrepreneur Institute network throughout the country.
