Social Media Intern

Company Overview 

Enterprise Development Centre (EDC) is the Entrepreneurship Centre of the Pan-Atlantic University. Set up in 2003 as the Centre for Enterprise Development Services (EDS), the Centre emerged as a direct response to the dearth of available professional business development and support services to small and growing businesses in Nigeria.EDC’s strength lies in it’s network of partners and collaborators, hence a lot of emphasis is being placed on partnership building, collaboration and constantly searching for value-driven initiatives / projects with high societal impact.

We believe deeply in applied knowledge. Consequently, most of what we do often end up in “How Knowledge gained” can be implemented for personal and organizational improvement. Every project is treated differently and solutions are derived from first principles. This makes each of our project unique.Beyond our initial intervention however, we believe strongly in long relationships, therefore we continue to engage with our clients and beneficiaries long after concluding the project
