One of the most important things for an entrepreneurs is continuous learning. The challenge is finding the right tools to facilitate this, and in Africa Start Smart is a great place to start.
When I founded Start Smart three years ago I envisioned a central place where entrepreneurs would come to get the support that they needed to grow their businesses, and we're well on our way to meeting this goal. In addition to our online and SMS based bookkeeping tool (which I blogged about last week), we've also started to offer:
1. Management Consulting: Through our consulting work, we provide our clients with a customized approach to solving their business problems. We'll share more after the launch, but some of the businesses that we've supported to date are Oasis Websoft and House of Cramer. If you're interested in learning more, click here.
2. Books and Training Courses: In addition to the more personalized consulting that we offer, Start Smart also offers books and training courses to prepare entrepreneurs with the skills that they need to succeed. Currently we offer a business plan writing course and monthly deep dive series, to learn more click here. Over the coming year we plan to offer additional courses on a number of topics, including developing effective performance metrics and developing the right approach to pricing. All of our current and future courses are structured around the books that we've written. If you're interested in registering for a course, or determining which is the best fit for you, click here.
We're just about halfway to the launch now and very excited to continue to share more about Start Smart with you. Stay tuned!
