Special offer for MSMEs
The question you may ask is this – what makes a business successful? Is it just funding? While funding is great for businesses, at the SME Digital Academy, we know that a major gap that has slowed down businesses in Nigeria is KNOWLEDGE. How many business owners know how to package a business plan, or pitch an idea, or do great customer service or sales, or digital marketing or networking? How many understand the workings of the Government and how to navigate international markets. How many business founders understand book-keeping or strategic positioning or taxation and so on. So even with the right funding, business owners need to become better at starting, running and scaling their businesses for the country to achieve its vision for the MSME sector.
It was on the backdrop of this that the Federal Government of Nigeria, through the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment (FMITI), the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN), on November 12, 2020, launched the SME Digital Academy, in partnership with Sapphital learning Ltd to become the official Academy for educating, empowering and elevating millions of MSMEs in Nigeria and across Africa. The platform was unveiled by the Hon. Minister of State for Industry, Trade and Investment and has since become the platform where thousands of MSMEs are learning and gaining knowledge.
