EIA Programs:

EIA has programs targeting  the enterprises right from ideation to launching to finally scaling up.

1. StartUp Course:

This training supports early-stage entrepreneurs through the stages of business conceptualization, design, organization, management, and identification of funding strategies. The StartUp training follows a fully-fledged and structured training model where participating entrepreneurs receive post-training support in form of technical support and access to Start-up financing options to enable the enterprises to meet their potential growth needs.

2. Cente Ya Kikazi:

This is a women empowerment program that improves access to capacity-building opportunities and access to finance for female-led enterprises across the East-African region.. The rationale of #CenteYaKikazi is that while formal Female-Led SMEs represent 31 to 38 percent of all SMEs in emerging markets), the average growth rate of women’s enterprises is significantly low. Several factors including difficulties in access to finance & capacity building have contributed to the slow growth of female-owned businesses. The Program is supported by Village Capital.

3. Mentorship Program:

We host experienced business players to share their experiences with the entrepreneurs in order to guide their strategic goals.

4. Catalyser & Accelerator Labs:

These focus on Scaling Up and Investment Readiness of relatively established enterprises. In this case, we do partner with organizations, development agencies, etc, to train their portfolio companies/enterprises. Therefore we tailor these trainings based on the needs assessment.

5. Management Programs:

These are focused on improving the productivity of employees at their workplace through innovation and intrapreneurship.
