BUSINESS PRIOR TO PARTICIPATING ON CED
The business started as a small business that did not seem to have a lot of potential for growth. There was very little knowledge about entrepreneurship and running a company other than an idea of the product and the difference it could make..
BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS SINCE ENROLLING ON CED
The business has grown a lot. It now operates on business principles taught from the CED. It now has a clear direction. The biggest highlight has to be engaging with other young business owners and learning a lot from each other, understanding that entrepreneurship is not an easy road but it is definitely worth it. Our product has been tested in the market and the client reaction is very positive.
POSITIVE BUSINESS OUTCOMES ATTRIBUTED TO CED PARTICIPATION
Since enrolling with CED I have been able to focus my thinking on all aspects of entrepreneurship right from formulating the business idea. I now also have the ability to manage business record keeping and the drafting of key systems such as budgets. I am now also able to present my business idea. I know how to present my business and understand the value of networks and their impact on my business. My confidence in the entrepreneurial space has gone from strength to strength.
ASPIRATIONS FOR THE BUSINESS
The business has since learnt how to operate its finances professionally. There is a lot that has been learnt regarding branding, image and marketing that will be applied even in the future. Sales have increased and the business is now ready to move to the next level.
NEXT LEVEL FUNDING REQUIREMENT AND WHAT IS THE ANTICIPATED GROWTH OF THE BUSINESS AT THIS NEXT LEVEL
Expansion is the biggest aspiration. Growing to be known outside the country and supply big stores all over the continent, and possibly the world.
