The UNDP Libya announced Sunday that it had organised a first Demo Day for 84 future entrepreneurs in the creative sector. At the Demo Day, graduates presented their businesses and products after completing a training programme.
The training focused on commercializing and marketing innovative products, as well as the application of digital tools to improve their businesses.
The UNDP said Libyan culture and creativity offer great potential to increase female and youth entrepreneurship and diversify Libya’s economy. It said Libya has a vibrant and skilled population that dreams of targeting this gap in creative sectors, creating new jobs and promoting peaceful coexistence along the way.
A revival and celebration of culture and heritage is an important aspect of its peacebuilding and resilience work in Libya, the UNDP stated.
