Kaymu.pk, an online marketplace, has launched the Kaymu Entrepreneurship initiative for youth all across Pakistan. Kaymu Entrepreneurship is an initiative intended to empower entrepreneurs by enabling them to create and operate a successful ecommerce store.
Interested candidates can go to the ‘Kaymu Entrepreneurship’ Facebook page to apply for the program. Candidates will be selected through an interview process. Once selected, a dedicated Kaymu team will be providing tutorials, workshops, and mentoring sessions to help young entrepreneurs on the operations, benefits, and even challenges of starting an online business. Based on their performance, these young entrepreneurs can earn up to rupees 20,000 per month.
Commenting on Kaymu’s Entrepreneurship initiative, Country Manager for Kaymu Pakistan Mr Adam Dawood said, “Ecommerce is here to stay but vast majority of Pakistan’s small retailers and traders are still only selling offline. In order to address this issue, we have launched the Kaymu Entrepreneur Program, which is aimed at growing Pakistan’s ecommerce sector by providing young entrepreneurs a platform to run successful ecommerce stores.”
Kaymu, has partnered with local universities, learning institutions, and multiple high profile forums to educate and encourage youth on the benefits of starting their own e-commerce businesses. As part of this drive, Kaymu’s team visited the Institute of Business Administration (IBA) in Karachi, where they interacted with students and informed them about the Kaymu Entrepreneurship Initiative.
E-commerce is still a new concept in Pakistan, and motivating youth to take an active role in developing online businesses is necessary for the growth of the country’s e-commerce sector.
