CLESE Entrepreneurial Development Centers – A thriving commercial life is one of the keys to broader economic prosperity. In order to succeed, enterprising business people need proven know-how and state-of-the-art commercial skills. Trained by Focus Education, local staff now operates the CLESE network -- dozens of provincial Entrepreneurial Development Centers, providing thousands of students each year with comprehensive training and the tools required to turn their ideas into thriving commercial ventures. CLESE graduates have already established dozens of new small and medium businesses, creating new sources of employment and income for themselves and their communities.
