Entrepreneurship Development

MDi Pakistan offers a 12-weeks Diploma in Entrepreneurship that is a unique first in Pakistan. There are other entrepreneurship programs in the country offered by universities, NGOs and private organizations that are either academic in nature or last over a few days but this is the first credible longer term program that has been designed to offer practical skills and mentoring.


The Diploma is based on the following:


  • a practical program based on internationally proven content
  • taught by experienced entrepreneurs and trainers, not university professors
  • supported by IFC Business Edge, an advisory service of IFC/World Bank
  • certification will include the logo of MDi and IFC Business Edge

For more information about this program, please visit here or visit the MDi Entrepreneurship Facebook. Download the Registration Form.


We also offer a 1-week Certificate in Entrepreneurship program for those who do not have the time to attend the 12-week Diploma program.


You may also want to visit the MDi Pakistan Entrepreneurship website offering a collection of entrepreneurship resources including videos, articles, presentations and news about startups and entrepreneurship.


Micro-Entrepreneurship and Programs for Youth 


MDi Pakistan offers the Micro-Entrepreneurship Development Program (MEDP) for grassroots participants and youth in a form customized to the specific requirements of each client organization. The MEDP ranges from 3 days to 5 days based on mix of modules and trainee profiles. The program has already been deployed and tested by several international and local development agencies in Pakistan.


It is targeted at both existing and potential micro-entrepreneurs and can include additional modules for women entrepreneurs. The program is delivered in Urdu with local language/picture/graphics based handouts and is primarily interactive, activity-based and participatory in format. The program can also be delivered in English when the client so desires.
