Business Development Workshops for Start-ups and SME's
Partner: Financial Literacy Initiative
About the project
The Financial Literacy Initiative (FLI) is a national platform to enhance financial education for individuals and micro-small- and medium sized enterprises. In March 2020, the FLI hosted the Okakarara StartUp Festival Own Your Zula. The festival was attended by 150 participants who received training from various training providers, including Dololo.
The objective was to help entrepreneurs identify strong points in their existing business that would improve their chances of qualifying for a grant application, a business loan or a government finance scheme. The topic presented by the Dololo team was How to write a proposal and included a business canvas to develop the proposal content.
The Dololo team provided a workshop package to each participant including an information handout and canvas template to ensure participants had the required tools to provide a professional proposal. Five facilitators from the Dololo team ensured that all participants received the required attention to grasp the workshop content.
