27 SMES PARTICIPATE IN SKILLS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES IN MAY

As part of IIA’s goal of enhancing the skills of SMEs on biashara.now platform, we have in partnership with our delivery partners launched two sets of skills development programs targeting SMEs. The trainings are the Tender Masterclass and the Coaching and Mentorship sessions where a total of 27 SMEs took part in the inaugural sessions.

The coaching and mentorship session was aimed at highlighting the impact of coaching on both personal and professional growth of an entrepreneur and also sought to clarify the difference between coaching and other support services such as mentoring and counseling.

Invest in Africa is currently developing a long-term coaching plan to engage the wider pool of SMEs under the Biashara.Now platform and cement coaching as a vital component of the capacity building program..
