The incubation, development and support of sustainable entrepreneurship and micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs) is crucial for the creation of quality jobs, increasing employment opportunities and productive economic development.
The MSMEs business mentor-ship program is organized in the context of an Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Hub. The hub ties together six core elements we believe form the focal points around which successful enterprises are organized. The highlighted key points are necessary for an entrepreneurship ecosystem to create a supportive and enabling environment which empowers entrepreneurs to grow and succeed sustain ably. The main themes are:
- Policy, partnerships and governance
- Financial services
- Support service
- Human Capital
Research on the development of entrepreneurship has indicated that when MSMEs are mentored, the enterprises are twice as likely to surpass their fifth anniversary of being in business. MSMEs mentorship therefore good for individual entrepreneurs and firms as it enhances the business profitability, sustainability and ability to expand its workforce.
By providing entrepreneurs and business leaders with mentoring opportunities, they form a network of valuable relationships that inspire and empower them to achieve their personal and business potential. By placing a mentoring culture at the heart of the entrepreneurship ecosystem, we believe that together with our partners and sponsors we can improve and achieve more beyond this statistic and positively change the common trend that only 25-30% of start-ups survive past five (5) years.
