Zambia SME investment readiness

In 2019 we’ll organise ‘investment readiness’ workshops for small and medium enterprises with a turnover of US$25.000 and more in Solwezi en Lusaka, Zambia. The workshops focus on scaling, growth hacking, investment needs and how to attract investors.

In Solwezi the workshop links to an investor expo organised in August 2019 where businesses from Northwestern Zambia and investors are matched. The expo serves to showcase SMEs and connect them to African and Chinese investors. In Lusaka we’l train SMEs that focus on the urban consumer market. There we connect to accelerators (Wecreate), hubs (Bongohive) and investors (Hivos Food and Lifestyle Fund and Zenga Capital).

The workshops are funded by RVO and organized together with PUM senior experts.
