For founders and owners of SMEs who lack the skills and knowledge to access finance and grow their businesses, SMEFaculty is an online consulting platform that enables interactions with experienced MBAs and skilled professionals who provide pro bono mentoring and paid consulting services aimed at enhancing their performance. Unlike Fiverr and Freelancer, a significant percentage of these interactions are free.
Increasing the success rate of SMEs could have a multiplier effect on Africa’s economic development. Even though business management is not rocket science, research shows that 70% of businesses fail. A few well-timed pieces of advice often make the difference between success and failure for the entrepreneur.
SMEFaculty is an online platform that links entrepreneurs in Africa to MBAs around the world who provide expert advice online to help the SMEs grow.
Our target market is SMEs in emerging economies, particularly women-led SMEs.
