We are happy to announce the launch of Module 1 of Business Skills for Women Entrepreneurs – mentoring for beginners.
Business Skills for Women Entrepreneurs – mentoring for beginners is provided in the form of one-to-one mentoring sessions. It is suitable for aspiring or beginner female entrepreneurs, who are currently developing their first business, initiative or a project.
In this unique formula, an aspiring entrepreneur receives advice focused directly on the project, business or initiative, which she is currently working on – rather than it being a general entrepreneurship training, which provides information applicable in various scenarios.
By participating, a female entrepreneur learns a methodology of project or business development – what elements and facets to consider in its architecture to increase chances of succeeding.
Module 1: Business Idea Assessment
Do you have an idea for an initiative, project or business? Increase your chances of succeeding by talking it over with an adviser.
The first module of Business Skills for Women Entrepreneurs – mentoring for beginners covers an assessment of an idea for a business, project or initiative, scrutinising its viability and sustainability.
How does it work?
This module comprises of three one-to-one conversation sessions with an entrepreneurship mentor.
Firstly, you present your business, initiative or project idea. Then the mentor asks you a range of questions that help her understand your project in more depth and estimate how viable and sustainable it potentially is.
This allows aspiring and beginner entrepreneurs to identify the strengths areas of their initiative and understand which aspects of their project or business still need developing.
The sessions include a brainstorming to refine the idea, by addressing potential challenges identified through the assessment conversations.
This is suitable for women who are planning or starting a project, an initiative or a business, or to ones who have already launched something but are struggling to gain traction. (Non-profit and for-profit initiatives are eligible.)
These assessment conversation sessions create a solid basis for developing a business plan or project budget (Module 2).
