BiD Network and E4impact join forces to promote SMEs in Sub-Saharan Africa.
BiD Network, Dutch foundation whose mission is to increase economic development by supporting small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in emerging markets, will offer various advantages to E4impact Alumni. BiD in fact offers advisory services on how to set up deal flow sourcing, mentoring, investor services and business angel networks in developing markets.
Thanks to this partnership, 15 selected E4impact Alumni from Ghana and Kenya will benefit from free tailored Distance Coaching. Each of the selected entrepreneur will be matched with a suited Coach among BiD Network’s roster. The Coach will provide distance support (through Skype call, chat, email) accordingly to the needs expressed by the entrepreneur for a period of at least 3 months.
The alliance also gives to E4impact women entrepreneurs the opportunity to compete in the “Women in Business Challenge”, the business plan competition for African women entrepreneurs seeking training, coaching, networking and finance to start and grow their business.
Furthermore, members of BiD Network will be part of the jury of the MBA Business Competitions in Kenya, Uganda and Ghana.
E4impact Alumni will receive more details on how to apply to this opportunities through the dedicated Alumni FB Group.
