The SME Owners & Directors training in partnership with FSDA and SNDBX

The Tukuze Biashara IMFact-SNDBX capacity-building program is a practical learning experience that involves in-class sessions, coaching and implementation of lessons designed to enhance the capacity of business owners for growth. The program will provide straightforward, relevant, easy to-understand, executable content to the trainees, which will immediately impact their businesses.

The content is delivered by SNDBX’s experienced and knowledgeable experts, as well as financial advisors from IMFact. The SNDBX experts are not only business professional service providers but are also business owners in their own right. This gives them unique perspectives on how to help other businesses while keeping the learning relatable. IMFact’s advisors also come with years of experience working with SMEs and providing solutions for their financial needs.
