It’s no longer news, among the myriad of challenges affecting entrepreneurs in Nigeria, that access to finance and skill acquisition stands out. Most entrepreneurs might argue that lack of infrastructure remains high on their list but there are certain factors that are beyond ones control.
As small businesses continue to advocate for better infrastructure for ease of doing business, other essential factors that guarantee business success are more or less within the grasp of SMEs.
Access to finance, developing a valid business plan that attracts investors, building mutually beneficial partnerships that will speed up growth, developing and executing a winning marketing/sales strategy, as well as customer management strategies are a few factors that business owners have control over and are within their reach. Every entrepreneur can acquire and implement these business saving methods and skills if they wish to acquire them.
The facts are there; a business without a plan on how to generate sales and ensure return on investment cannot raise funds to do just that. Essentially, it all boils down to how badly entrepreneurs want to excel and build sustainable businesses.
At the Entrepreneur essentials 2.0 training, we will explore structures and the must-dos for businesses to attract funds, detail winning marketing and sales strategies, and will also cover critical business structures for sustainability. The training will cover:
