The training that we provide is a simulation based business skills development tool masquerading as a game that simulates real market conditions and business scenarios in the training room.
We are using a Business training course called “BEST” which stands for “Business Expenses Savings Training” which was developed by the South African Institute of Entrepreneurship (SAIE).
The aims of our Business Sustainability Programme (BSP) are:
To assist entrepreneurs and graduates from our Business Training through the first year of running their business
To provide practical examples that can assist entrepreneurs to unlock challenges and implement sustainable solutions
The programme is for graduates of the training who desire to continue with the business that they started during the training or to begin a different one.
In order to increase our reach and impact, we have developed a model and process that enables us to train trainers
We have strict selection criteria and terms for partnership and so we seek to partner with like-minded individuals or organisations who are willing to comply with all aspects of our programme, content and values
Our Business Academy aims to equip entrepreneurs to plan, launch, grow and sustain businesses that will have a transforming impact on their stakeholder community.
It is for anyone who wants to start and run what is defined as a small or medium sized business as well as for graduates of the BEST training who have proven their ability to sustainably run a micro business and wish to step-up and grow their business…
I have learnt how to plan for my business, selling how to separating money for Business, food and other things. I am really thankful for everything that I have learnt in this workshop.
I learned how to start a business and how to plan and how to handle the cases in business. I learned about what you need to expect in business. I learned that it is important to put money in the bank. I thank you very much about this business training because I learned a lot.
Because of this course I am now more committed to my work and encouraged/challenged to work more.
I learnt a lot in this Business Training. I did Business before, but I was never doing well. I guess that was because I never made a budget. I am so grateful for what I learned. In a Business it will always go up and down, but I know that I can handle that now, since I know how to save some money. And I saw as well that you don’t need big money to start a business, you can start small and work yourself up.
For this course, I learn how to run a business and to save money, even to negotiation to the customer. Negotiate a good deal because when you run a business you have to know good and bad prices. This term is very good because we also know how to plan our business. Before you buy you have to plan first. Then when you finish to plan you start to buy material. Then you start your business. It is what I’m learn.
The workshop was an eye-opener. I certainly learnt a lot on how to manage a business. It is one of the best business trainings that exists, and simply because it is so practical.
I learned how to invest money and how to use business money. It is very important to know how much money you need to start a business and how much will spend.
My name is Florence Kunkundiye and I would like to say what I have learned from this course. First of all I have learned that during the business, he/she has to record each of the movement that is happening during the business. During the business also, we have to use money well like saving in the bank without keeping it at home because the moment the whole money is home, it is possible to use it in a bad way and we never know what will come tomorrow or more future. To do a business, we have also to plan it well in terms of looking where he/she is going to put the business and use well the products how she/he make relationship with customers, use the price well so that customers are exchange money due to the value of the product, promotion is also important. As my conclusion, this course was so important to me because I have learned a lot from it.
Business is important. You can have a successful business when you are determined in what you are doing. In business you can make good friends, and you also have food on the table.
BEST Entrepreneurship Training program was a very interesting subject for me. I feel I am going to run a business with a different concept in future. I have tried many businesses and sadly I found them all bankrupt or closing down. But BEST has helped me to understand that planning of a business is critical, investing and adding value and selling and analysing your business puts more insights in how I can grow and run a business successfully, even with very little money. The practice of budgeting and purchasing or selling of goods was the BEST I had. Thank you for this rich program.
I really enjoyed the training even though it was a bit hard for me to do all the calculation. This training helped a lot on the budgeting part (business, domestic, and saving)
I like the training because it is fun and wonderful.
It taught me more things on how to run your business. That you must not keep your money at home, and to be wise in each and everything you do.
For me the course was very educating in a way that people work in their business, or making profit. Knowing how to use your money and making sure that you use your money in a good way. The Bottom Line Basic Course it made me realise that with little amount of money you can make lot of profit if you know the strategy and to plan your business. Thank all the people that taught us . They really brought light in our own business.
