The Citi Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Citigroup, yesterday launched the 15th Citi Microentrepreneurship Awards (CMA) to encourage micro, small and medium entrepreneurship in the country.
This year the CMA programme is being organised jointly by the Citi Foundation and the Shakti Foundation, while the strategic partner of the event is the Credit and Development Forum.
The awards, which were initiated in 2005, will be given in six categories, the organisers announced at a press conference in the capital’s Six Seasons Hotel. The deadline for submission of the applications is January 25 next year. The award ceremony is expected to be held next year.
