Entrepreneurs in Lagos will have the opportunity to develop business plans for free with the help of CredentWest Solutions Limited, a management consulting firm in Nigeria, focused on micro businesses. CredentWest is giving this opportunity to 2 entrepreneurs in Lagos as part of its Corporate Citizenship initiative.
“We are offering free help until September 30, 2017, to the first 2 entrepreneurs who apply for a free business plan,” Deyo Adegboyega, CredentWest‘s communication manager, said.
“A business plan not only helps you improve your business concept and increase the chances of success, it also helps you get funding for your business idea,” he continued. “Investors or lenders want to see your business plan and how money flows through the business, but about 40 percent of business owners don’t know this because they don’t have a business plan.”
“There are over 3.2 million micro businesses in Nigeria, and we want to help them succeed.”
How to apply for the free business plan
- Simply send an email to CCInitiative@credentwest.com, stating the business you are into or want to start.
- Then the firm will let you know if you have been selected.
Apart from business plans, CredentWest offers several other services to micro businesses and intending business owners. These are feasibility study development, strategy, market research, bookkeeping and accounting services, and training.
