Funding Connection Services

One of our key focus areas is assisting our clients to compile clear and concise business plans.

We assist you in the draft process and make certain that you have all the necessary details to provide a compelling case. Here are some of the key factors we teach you when compiling a business plan:

  • Recognize your business’s core financial needs
  • Think about staffing
  • Decide on your target market and product or service to be rendered
  • Provide your marketing strategy
  • Acknowledge you may have competitors
  • Establish your costing and pricing regime
  • Should you have a production process, take note of this
  • Identify if you require equipment
  • If you seek to include any business partners, agreements must be drawn up accordingly

Online workshops

One unique aspect we provide is participation in online workshops. Our workshops are focused on giving you the necessary tools to handle your business and apply for funding

Each workshop is focused on a specific topic. Topics that we explore in our workshops include things like if your company qualifies for funding, how to apply for your chosen loan, what documents you would need for the loan, and how to acquire them. We even help to fill in such forms. These are just some of the vital topics we cover in our invaluable workshops. Workshops are also offered in-house should you prefer face-to-face learning.

Coaching, mentoring and business registration

Our services do not just stop at helping you with administration duties, like filing an application for a business loan. We believe in providing our clients and young and upcoming entrepreneurs with the tools to succeed in their business endeavors.

We offer a state-of-the-art, in-house coaching and mentoring programme. This programme is presented by professionals and experts from the business sector. You’ll learn invaluable skills to start a business and keep it running. Topics like business plans are also covered.
