The Grassroots Enrichment Program (GEP) is a program to strengthen capacity, enhance skills and inject entrepreneurial added value to grassroots innovators in order to be competitive in the mainstream market.

Grassroots innovators who receive YIM innovation development funds start in 2021.

Grassroots innovators will go through two phases of the program, namely:
1. Enhancing the set of innovator capabilities; and
2. Community innovation sharing

For the Improvement of the Innovator Capability Set, innovators will be offered basic entrepreneurial training to add value to business knowledge in line with current developments. Among the courses offered are Basic Entrepreneurship Courses, Outbound-Inbound Marketing and Canvas Business Model. In this phase also a Business Coach will be appointed for the purpose of Coaching-Mentoring who will monitor and guide innovators as a direct reference in their respective business problems.

For Community Innovation Sharing, innovators are given the opportunity to impart experience and knowledge related to innovation and entrepreneurship to the target community. This partnership is open to various forms whether sharing the success of innovation, entrepreneurship foundation, innovation development workshops and so on according to the needs and wants of the proposed community.

The program will last for 4 months.

So far, YIM has entered into a joint venture with the National Institute of Entrepreneurship (INSKEN) to conduct innovator guidance to a level where the innovator can be prepared to compete with the current market. YIM will collaborate with agencies that are appropriate for program filling in the future.
