Help review or build a financeable business plan: We believe the first step to any business success is helping SMEs understand their business better. Therefore our first step is to conduct an as-is assessment of the business, which will then create a pathway for a solid business plan by outlining the risks and opportunities of the business.
Help build strong functional support (Finance, Operations, HR and Marketing): The Foundation will help SMEs develop functional expertise and implement best practices in areas such as finance, operations, HR and marketing.

It will also help with HR planning, developing market linkages and designing marketing campaigns to promote brand awareness. The Foundation’s support will extend across all major functions and organizational activities where SMEs may require assistance.
Help SMEs understand the importance of having a strong Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) plan: The Foundation will promote ESG practices that can be fully integrated for all SMEs operations, generate economic value as well as mitigate any environmental risks, address occupational health and safety hazards, and ensure compliance with local legislation and regulatory requirements.
