Business Incubation – Qhotsiso
BEDCO is historically an incubation centre as since its inception, it has existed to incubate Basotho entrepreneurs until they become independent business people. The notion of incubation is derived from the literal meaning of hatching eggs by a hen until they are ready to come out of the egg shell as chickens. However, once, they are chickens, they are not yet independent of their mother. They need to be nurtured until they are able to fend for themselves. Likewise, BEDCO’s incubation programme hatches young entrepreneurs who are totally dependent on the Corporation at the beginning stages until they are able to grow themselves unassisted.
