SME Stream

This course helps small and medium-sized business owners use what they love about their business to build a strong plan that will help their business grow and stand out.
We will show how to use this unique quality to attract more customers and build a team that works well with the business goals. Finally, we advise business owners on planning ahead.

This course starts by teaching the basic ways of thinking needed for starting a business, like knowing yourself, coming up with ideas, and understanding what makes something valuable. Then, we move on to practical steps like how to start your business, create a website, and handle legal rules. Lastly, we teach you how to convince others to buy what you’re selling and how to grow your business by hiring more people.
