Nigeria as a nation is faced with many challenges in which unemployment is paramount. Many graduate youths roam about the streets without jobs. The ones that are self-employed do not have training that could sustain their businesses. This paper attempts to look at capacity building for entrepreneurs and sustainable development. The purpose of the paper is to examine how entrepreneurship could be sustained in Nigeria through capacity building programmes. The unemployed youths will find this study useful because it will expose them to different entrepreneurships in Nigeria and make them to give more importance to traditional education that exist in their families. The entrepreneurs in Nigeria will find this study a valuable asset that will make them to go for more capacity building programmes. The study will also give the federal government of Nigeria an impetus to give more support and assistance to entrepreneurship. The paper is in four main sections. The first section, introduction contains a brief explanation of the key terms: entrepreneurship, capacity building, development and sustainable development. Section two examined capacity building programmes for entrepreneurs in Nigeria. Section three x-rayed the challenges faced by entrepreneurs in Nigeria. Conclusion is the fourth section.
