Startups and SMEs are regarded as the driving force behind structural changes and sustainable economic growth and prosperity, especially in their contribution to job creation as well as technological and social innovation. However, establishing a diverse group of successful small businesses is difficult.
Small businesses are risky undertakings. Many owners lack management and marketing skills or have inadequate capital, and face competition from large, and increasingly,foreign competitors. Founder’s Hub seeks to create a network of businesses that will serve as a support mechanism for small businesses and new entrepreneurs to help each other survive and thrive by connecting them with seasoned experts in the industry.
The forum is expected to provide a variety of events and sessions focused on bringing together continental stakeholders involved in the business ecosystems. The program will be featuring:Scrum sessions, office hours, mentors call, mentors group, hangouts, book reading and tours.
