3rd April to 15th May, 2020
This online course was created by Mirepa as a way to help MSMEs navigate the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
We do realize that most MSMEs will struggle to recover from the economic shocks that COVID-19 has presented. This blended learning program will provide multiple webinars plus small group online learning sessions to help entrepreneurs think through how to rebound post this phase.
We will look at how you repurpose your assets to generate enough cash flow to weather the drought.
Who will benefit from this training:
Entrepreneurs, managers, consultants who help MSMEs, impact investors and anyone interested in the subject matter.
How much will this cost:
This is Mirepa’s way of giving back during these very difficult times. However, while we do not charge, it costs us to deliver this program so we will only admit individuals who show a commitment to utilize the learning for their businesses. We will, therefore, interveiw applicants to establish commitment level before we register them for the course.
What is the duration of the program:
This program is structure to happen over a 6-week period. Every week, participants will have access to the following:
- 1 webinar relevant to the week’s theme
- Multiple group coaching sessions (for only registered participants)
- Learning material on SME-Connect
- Resources based on assess needs that companies may have
What can I expect from this program:
It is our expectation that you will quickly apply the lessons from the weekly engagements to your business and tap into the wealth of experience and expertise that the facilitators and coaches will bring during this period.
How much of my time will I need to commit:
You will need to attend the weekly webinars and spend at least an additional hour per week reviewing the content and completing the exercises. Now, making the time to apply the acquired skills, joining the coach and group sessions, that will require much more time. However, if you are serious about your business, then you see the time commitment as an investment.
