Technical Assistance and Training in Business Models and Business Plans and Elevator Pitches for Financial Investments
In August and September of 2018, the Machado’s Holding consultant team provided assistance and training in business models and business plans implementation to companies selected by Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), in the provinces of Manica, Sofala, Zambézia, Tete, Nampula and Cabo Delgado.
Not only did the team provide the technical assistance and the training, but they also prepared the companies for an elevator pitch in which the companies would present their business to a jury who would select two companies to advance to the next stage of the competition – Elevator Pitches in Nairobi to receive the financial investment.
The training in business models and business plans consisted in lectures using audiovisual presentation tools and practical exercises and also individual support to each participant selected by GAIN. This training was also served as guide to help participants understand the strengths, the weaknesses, the opportunities and the threats that each company’s internal and external environment is subjected to.
Out of the 60 companies that were selected by GAIN for this training, 48 companies were assisted and participated in the training given by the MH consultants team and 13 of these companies were selected to the next phase of the competition in Nairobi, Kenya.
